Default XPress Conversions to Indesign

(Hoping this is the right forum...)

Has anyone out there noticed a (possible) bug with regards to InDesign (CS) converting Quark XPress (3.3) Documents? I haven't checked the Adobe forums, but I thought I'd ask here.

I'm being forced to open/convert several XPress files into InDesign; It seems that the following is happening:

Any ILLUSTRATOR eps art that was placed into the original XPress Layout AND was 1) SCALED and 2) STROKED -- InDesign doesn't seem to be scaling the stroke weights at all. In other words, a logo that was, say, 6 inches wide and stroked 4 pts and scaled (in XPress) to 50% comes out 3 inches, but with a 4 pt stroke (rather than the expected 2 pt).

Annoying as hell, I must say. Oh well, just one more reason I use InDesign from start to finish now.
