I think there's a howto somewhere that explains the tif format used for
faxes has a different scales in x and y.
Each pixel is twice as high as it is wide; which could bring about the
stretching you mention.
This odd pixel shape is a form of data compression that is based on the
premise that faxed mesages usually contain printed text.
