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 (

On this image ( I

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.
