Ticket #3467 (closed bug: wontfix)
Label Buffers Produces Extremely Bloated PDF Export (Vector) under Linux.
|Reported by:||Thaddeus||Owned by:||mhugent|
|Priority:||major: does not work as expected||Milestone:||Version 1.7.0|
|Keywords:||Bloated PDF PostScript using Buffers||Cc:||mayeulk|

|Must Fix for Release:||No||Awaiting user input:||yes|
Simply by applying "Buffer Labels" to an 8-letter label on a vector layer containing a single-feature point creates more than a million (1314400 --corrupted PS) lines of PostScript? code that takes 5 minutes to display on a modern PC. Adding a few more features to label crashes Composer. The composer view used has just one item, a map object. This is under Ubuntu 10.10 and QGIS 1.6.
The attached example contains the QGS file, the point SHP file along with the malformed PDF printout.
