W3C SVG test suite "filter-composite-03-f"

According to w3c "The test is passed if there are four filled squares visible, and the fill color matches the respective reference stroke exactly."

LO Draw fails this test (fill colour doesn't match reference stroke).
Comment 1 sasha.libreoffice 2012-06-27 00:12:14 UTC
Thanks for bugreport
reproduced in 3.3.4 on Fedora in both File->Open and Insert->Picture
reproduced in 3.5.4 and 3.6.beta1 only in File->Open
Comment 2 sasha.libreoffice 2012-06-27 00:38:26 UTC
Sorry, correction:
Link to test:

There shown that all 4 squares should be without squares inside. But Inkscape and Firefox show all 4 squares with other squares inside.

If version that all 4 squares should be without squares inside is correct, then:
reproduced in 3.3.4 on Fedora in both File->Open and Insert->Picture
reproduced in 3.5.4 in both File->Open and Insert->Picture
reproduced 3.6.beta1 in both File->Open and Insert->Picture

LO (x64), Window$ 7 Ultimate SP1 x64, there's 1 type of problem with the 'filter-composite-03-f' test file: each square has a middle of a different color, even completely different, and has a square ring around it, even of completely different color. See the attachment below.

Dear Valek Filippov,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
