I created a 1194x1534 px SVG image using inkscape and uploaded it (see
URL). Unsatisfied with the result I modified the image, also enlarging
the canvas in x-direction to 1260x1534, and reuploaded. The new
serverside rendered bitmap is clipped and has a wrong aspect ratio. The
SVG version renders fine in my browser (Konqueror).
The MediaWiki in question is the one used on en.wikipedia.org (1.6alpha).
The image claims to be 1260.1801 x 1533.65 pixels, and is rendered there to 492x599.
This ratio appears to be consistent.
But the content of the image is rendered too wide and thus cut at the sides. The
center dot is eliptical while it shouldn't be (see
It seems that the reason for the aforementioned behaviour were some
sodipodi/inkscape tags in the sgv file, which caused the file to render
correctly in inkscape and ksvg, but had rsvg render the picture with a wrong
aspect ratio causing clipping at the sides. My guess: it was a toplevel
"transform" attribute. I removed it by hand and reuploaded. Works fine now.
