It seems to be still present in testing 3448.
Part of the problem are the clamps in PAGE_INFO::SetWidthMils() and ::SetHeightMils().
These are restricting the required small size of the SVG page. I think we could simply
put wxWarnings in there instead, enabled only in debug builds.
But even if you allow the desired page size, but setting the desired page size in the
debugger, the SVG output can be empty.
This is what I learned this morning, and I can spend more time on it this evening if
Jean-Pierre has not addressed it by then.
