[Paparazzi-devel] Turn following not matching the intended turn radius?

Hi all.  I've noticed in the simulator that when a turn is commanded, such as 
the oval in the example basic.xml file, the aircraft does not match the circle 
drawn in the GCS, but turns outside it by around 5-10 meters.  

Is this intentional behavior or am i misunderstanding how to interpret the GCS. 
 Attached is a small screen shot of what I mean.

I know that I have not reached the roll limit of the airframe as commanding 
other blocks may cause tighter turns.  It does seem though that all commanded 
turns following a radius go wide.

Any comments would be great!
