Bug Description

The extension Export > Guillotine does not take into account guides created with the extension Render > Guides creator.

- go to Extensions > Export > Guillotine and apply. There will only be one image generated (the whole page)

When dragging guides from the rulers, the Guillotine extension works as expected.

Inkscape 0.91 r13725 on Win 7 Pro.

- confirmed on Windows 7, Inkscape 0.91 r13725 (Jan 30 2015)
- also confirmed on Windows XP, Inkscape rev 14357, using the attached drawing

there is a minor difference in the format used to specify the orientation. When dragging guides from the rulers, the following notation is used for the direction: orientation="1,0". On the other hand, the Python guides extension uses the notation : orientation="1052.3622,0". These are mathematically equivalent and do not affect the rendering of the guides, but it may be affecting the guillotine extension in some way.

just writing to confirm the above supposition. attached is an edited version of the first svg file. It has been edited so that all orientations are specified as either (1,0) or (0,1). With this file the guillotine output appears to be correct.

attached is a proposed modification of the guillotine extension to deal with this problem.
This can be tested by copying it to the Inkscape\share\extensions\ directory.
