Bug Description

Working with this project at this revision:
this file:

Here's what I see and expect to see: First image is in OS X showing first page of schematic with missing border, and many missing wires. Second image is in Linux Mint 17 with another version (whatever mint's package manager installed)

Application: eeschema
Version: (2015-12-22 BZR 6403)-product debug build
wxWidgets: Version 3.0.2 (debug,UTF-8,compiler with C++ ABI 1002,GCC 4.2.1,STL containers,compatible with 2.8)
Platform: Mac OS X (Darwin 15.2.0 x86_64), 64 bit, Little endian, wxMac
Boost version: 1.54.0
libcurl version: 7.46.0 (with SSL - OpenSSL/1.0.2e)

I've built this from source today with wxPython 3.0.2 (with webkit something edited to include WebKitLegacy.h so it compiles on OS X 10.11 (this shouldn't be needed for 3.0.3, see ) )

On the console when running these are printed after loading this schematic:
kiRound_: in file /Users/nick/src/kicad/kicad/common/class_bitmap_base.cpp on line 233, val: inf too ' > 0 ' for int
kiRound_: in file /Users/nick/src/kicad/kicad/common/class_bitmap_base.cpp on line 234, val: inf too ' > 0 ' for int
Dec 24 12:59:12 eeschema[72466] <Error>: CGAffineTransformInvert: singular matrix.

There's more but I lost it because I kept searching. The schematic does in fact have a 0 scale image (lines 1312-4826 or so in the .sch file), and editing the eeschema source as follows seems to cause the printed errors to go away and missing wires and lines return.
in kicad/common/class_bitmap_base.cpp
void BITMAP_BASE::DrawBitmap( EDA_DRAW_PANEL* aPanel, wxDC* aDC, const wxPoint& aPos )
    if( m_bitmap == NULL )

    wxPoint pos = aPos;
    wxSize size = GetSize();

    // HACK: skip drawing 0x0 images
    if (size.x == 0 && size.y == 0)
