Opening a BMP file in PS tells me, that the file has a resolution of 1016,25 dpi.

The hexadecimal code for the resolution of this BMP image in a hex editor is 40 9c 00 00 (both directions).

9c40 -> to decimal = 40000 pixel per meter -> 1016 pixel per inch.

I suppose the resolution shown in Photoshop is wrong?

This issue was fixed a while back. Should work correctly in current versions of Photoshop. Thanks.
