Anyone have problem with the scale() function? I have code to increase a DOM object and the width works but the height never changes. I was passing a variable and I confirmed it by using alert() to see it and it is right. I switched the variable out in the scale() options with just a plain number and it still doesn't change. I had this code working when I developed it outside of Air but doesn't work now. Any ideas?

Code:
var el = Ext.Element.get(id);
el.scale(
	new_width,
	900, {
		easing: 'easeOut',
		duration: .5
	}
);
