Rotated Text with Full AspectRatio and ImageSize

Below I want "text" to be parallel to the segment from pt1 to pt2. This really works with the default AspectRatio for Graphics but not with the new Full value (Mathematica 6) with my settings for ImageSize (width different from height). How can I make "text" paralell to the segment in such situations? Notice that AbsoluteOptions[gr, AspectRatio] does not return any value in this case.

 Graphics[{Line[{pt1, pt2}], 
   Text["text", Offset[{-5, 5}, (pt1 + pt2)/2], {0, 0}, pt2 - pt1], 
   Arrow[{{0, 0}, pt2 - pt1}]}, 
AspectRatio -> Full, 
ImageSize -> {300, 100}], 
{{pt1, {-3, 3}}, Locator}, 
{{pt2, {1, 10}}, Locator}]

Any suggesttion will be appreciated.
