Hi, this is interesting. Of course, I'll take a look :)

This bug is fixed in current master. My earlier patch 588c5b0cff9bbdb2efbdfb259268154b0074e7e6 was buggy, and the follow-up patch 3b1db9b7a9afe147ed7f841c875bc3b91b03ace9 from yesterday solved this bug, too.

Problem was, there are dashed lines in the presentaion (EMF+ data) and my old patch generated about 57000 times more dashes than it should. This broke the renderer down, sorry.
