Just wanted to add that the problem seems to be related to an Inkscape property :

inkscape:stockid="Arrow2Lend" <--------- this is probably ignored

I'm not sure it has anything to do with that property, it's more likely caused
by librsvg ignoring the "overflow:visible" style. Inkscape's default markers are
defined outside their bounding box and therefore rely on the overflow to be
visible in order to look correct. Librsvg, hovewer, ignores this overflow
attribute (

I guess this is a duplicate of

Don't know if this is the same bug: looks fine on the full-
size image page, but the thumbnail on
title=NPN&oldid=46322776 is missing the emitter arrow.

Indeed, I can't get MediaWiki to render SVG line terminators at all...

This image should have arrows and dots, neither of which appear.

On this image ( I

Is it the same bug, is there a work around ?

This bug has been fixed upstream.

Upgrading to librsvg >= 2.18 would solve this.

Looks OK now that we have librsvg 2.22.0. The arrows in the first test case point the wrong way, but the rest of the test cases seem to be correct so I'll assume that the first one is an author issue.
