[ATTACH=CONFIG]13614[/ATTACH]I'm using a feature's envelope to create a polygon and noticed it is 0.25feet larger than the expected envelope. Data is a SDE feature class. I exported to shapefile with the exact same projection and the resulting envelope matches the feature's extent.

Attached image shows the feature as red/blue line. The grey line show the envelopes produced when feature is read from SDE (larger envelope) and shapefile (smaller). Any ideas/comments?
