Description Julien Palmas 2005-10-05 16:01:23 PDT
The URL points to a svg that triggers this warning.
This bug might already exist in the bugzilla list, but could not find where...

Reduced test case.

the use of <symbol> seems to be related.  This test might not be fully reduced
yet though.

Another reduced test case

This test case also triggers the warning.

If you add a viewBox attribute to the symbol element, the warning disappears .
For example :
<symbol id="coniferous" viewBox="0 0 100 50">

The warning comes from
KSVG::SVGFitToViewBoxImpl::parseViewBox(KDOM::DOMStringImpl *str)

The viewBox attribute is not compulsory (I think), but the parseViewBox method
is always called. This should be modified.
Comment 3 Julien Palmas 2005-10-06 07:06:19 PDT
Ah, forgot something.

If you add the viewBox attribute like I said before, the warning disappears, but the <use> element is not 
rendered anymore ...

rwlbuis patch

I'm not sure I really like this "dummy" (hack) SVG element for use, but at
least this patch fixes the hack.

It seems there is still a problem with the reduced testcase.
My suspicion, aspect ratio is not correctly handled!
I'll look at it tonight, unless someone beats me to it :)
