Bug Description

Rotating a group in a nested svg element works in inkscape but exporting to pdf will result in clipping of overflowing parts though no owerflow="hidden" attribute was set. See example file.
I'm using inkscape 0.47 on Linux Ubuntu 10.04 but also had this on Windows 7.

Note that nested <svg> elements are not (fully) supported by Inkscape. Use <g> instead or import the inner SVG using Inkscape's Import dialog.

Note that other SVG viewers (tested with Firefox 3.5.9, Safari 4.0.5, rsvg-view 2.26.2, Squiggle (Batik 1.7) [1] on OS X 10.5.8) all render the SVG file the same way as (cairo-based) PDF export from Inkscape.

The actual problem seems to be that Inkscape's renderer (used on-canvas and for bitmap export) is incorrect, not the exported PDF.

[1] Batik is one of two authoritative SVG renderers for Inkscape
