If you notice specific instances of this, you should list them
under the Edit Requests section of the Clipart Requests page on
the wiki, here:
Under the Edit Requests section of that page, just say something
like "Fix document bounds:" and list the images (by relative
path, like /animals/birds/eagle_01).  Some of these that I
had noticed were fixed for the 0.12 release, but I'm sure
there are some more that I didn't catch.  These are relatively
easy fixes (though, unfortunately, I don't know of an easy
way to _automate_ them; if someone else does, a tool to do
that would be most welcome).

This may be harder to fix.
