Subject Re: SVGGraphics2D omits certain java Arc2D input
Date Fri, 29 Jun 2012 10:48:28 GMT
Hi Rolf,
   What you describe sounds like a plausible chain of events.

   A small standalone example would be a good first step.
   Filing a bug with the example would be a great second step.
   Providing a patch for the bug would be a fabulous third step.
