Subject RE: Drag and drop breaks with a JSVGScrollPane?

OK, you're right; adding a viewBox isn't terribly difficult.  Where do I get the bounds for
this viewBox?  It seems like it would change when I scroll the canvas?  Is it the size of
the document itself that I can ask the JSVGCanvas for?

   This looks like a bug in the JSVGScrollPane (it's looking at GVT stuff
outside of the update manager thread).  The fix is pretty simple however,
add a viewBox attribute to the root SVG element.  This is a good idea

   The problem is that if there is no viewbox the canvas tries to be
nice and look at the actual bounds of the GraphicsNode and use that
instead.  The problem is that unless it does that in the UpdateManager
thread your code could have invalidated the bounds information at the
same time - in which case it just returns a null BBox.

   Probably the 'right' thing to do is for the canvas to 'cache' the
bounds of the GVT tree for each rendering/update - then the scroll pane
can just get that.  I get nervous about adding invokeAndWait calls
in the ScrollPane as it may cause lots of people to have lock ups.

   Yes, when the JSVGScrollPane is constructed it attaches it's self to
update callbacks of the canvas so it can keep the scrollbars in sync
all the scroll pane does is offer visual feedback and manipulation of the
existing scrolling support in the canvas).
