Bug Description

Original Title - viewBox with preserveAspectRatio="none" misinterpreted

After strugling with different renderings between
inkscape and librsvg, it turns out the viewbox
attribute seems to be misinterpreted in Inkscape.

Tested with the sample case SVG -
Editing the viewbox to be stretched by 50% on the X axis:

<svg width="150px" height="200px"
     viewBox="0 0 1500 1000" preserveAspectRatio="none"
     xmlns="" version="1.1">

rsvg render corresponds to the w3c result

Attaches is rsvg output and inkscape output.

Given that the core of this problem is Inkscape's lack of ViewBox support, I'm going to be marking all other related bugs as duplicates of this.

The other bug report said to add comments to this one: re: Adobe being the only one using viewbox?
ViewBox is also used by ConceptDraw Pro, which can export vector graphics of flowcharts/etc.

fixed in svn revision 20353.
note: removing some of the duplicates, they are related to viewBox but actually they address different problems (not preserveAspectRatio)
