Yes, you are right. I was confused with document default settings and system 
default settings: if I need particular paper size I would explicitly declare 
it in my document.

P.S. I'm writing now small tutorial for our students (on Russian of course) so 
this discussion was helpful in either case (We should distinguish carefully 
system and document settings and defaults).

Cheers, Vladimir
