A sod, isn't it!  I frequently scan at 4000ppi, then have to produce
8 x  5.38" @300ppi for press distribution. No problem with landscape shots,
but do it wrong and portrait format end up 5.047 x 8"!

The workaround is, when resizing to a target DPI using the height dimension
(instead of width) *always* change the DPI, BEFORE changing the height. Or

This doesn't apply when altering width, you can do it the more natural way
