On AspectRatio

I have taken the following command from Help on AspectRatio.

Show[Graphics[Circle[{0, 0}, 1], AspectRatio -> Automatic]];

This does not give an aspect ratio of 1 on my monitor. In fact when I 
measure the ratio of the height to width of the circle (or the 
surrounding box) generated by this command it is greater than 1.0. This 
is also true for

Show[Graphics[Circle[{0, 0}, 1], AspectRatio -> 1.0]];

Am I interpreting this option correctly? In any case would you please 
tell me how I can get the height to width ratio = 1.0 .
My application is parametric plots (phase-plane analysis) and I need the 
aspect ratio to be exactly one.
