Hi Min,

It looks like the scaling of figures that are larger than the cell output
div has changed in version 3.

Previously the scaling would preserve the aspect ratio of the figure, but
now it seems to just be scaling the width, and not the height.

This change can make it a lot harder to predict what a large figure is
going to look like, and is likely to confuse people who don't realize that
IPython, not matplotlib is applying the scaling.

Is this on purpose?
