[pstricks] behavior of arrows when plotting functions and scaling

It seems to me that the commands \psline and \psplot have different
behaviors with respect to arrowheads, and I was wondering if there is a
way to correct the behavior of \psplot in this regard.  The example I
include below is very simple, but it illustrates the problem I'm having
with something a bit more complex.  I would like to use the arrows=<-o
option, but when I scale the units, the arrowheads seem to be slightly
misplaced.  (Note: this doesn't seem to happen when the units are left

When you compile the example below and magnify a bit, you will see what I
mean.  The arrows on the top line are off a bit.  (I am trying to write
something for a powerdot presentation, so even though the magnification
may seem insignificant here, it is clear when on the presentation.)

Thank you for your help.
