Bug Description

libreoffice draw (lodraw) provides the ability to display a grid and to snap objects to the grid.

The grid display is controlled through either 'menu:View->Grid->Display Grid' or contextmenu:Grid->Display Grid'.
The grid snapping is controlled through either 'menu:View->Grid->Snap to Grid' or contextmenu:Grid->Sanp to Grid'.

None of these have any effect . The grid is never displayed and nothing ever snaps to the grid.

Tested without either of the .libreoffice and directories present to ensure this was not a misconfiguration on my part.

To reproduce:
* Run lodraw
* Right click in the page and select Grid->Display Grid
* Using the menu, select View->Grid->Display Grid

The expected behavior is the grid is displayed, but nothing shows.
