I see, this is a buggy behaviour.

\begin{psgraph}[Dx=50,dx=1cm,Ox=350,Dy=0.1,dy=1cm,Oy=0.6](0,0)(650,1.2){13cm}{11cm}%

then the absoute values are correct.

I have to look into the code what goes wrong. May take some time,
the next days are very busy ...

the problem of pstricks-add is the number of optional arguments, which
are really increasing and moving to \infty ... :-)
I will see, what makes sense.

thanks for the report
