Bad value for "preserveAspectRatio" error!

When preparing an ePub book for distribution, epubcheck throws an error message saying

Bad value for attribute "preserveAspectRatio"

This seems to have been introduced with Calibre 7 and its ability to scale cover images. Does anyone know I can get around this problem?

Thanks for any suggestions,
Guido

This is a guess, go to Conversions - EPUB Output - Preserve cover aspect ratio and either check it or uncheck it (the opposite of what you had it) and convert the file again.

As dwannthy said, if you remove the preserve cover aspect ratio, that will fix this. Note however, that this is another bug in epubcheck.
