0002521: syntax error handled like a warning
This line produce (correct) a syntax error

  "Trackable" [fontcolor=grey45,labelloc=c,fontname=Vera Sans, DejaVu Sans, Liberation Sans, Arial, Helvetica, sans,shape=box,height=0.3,align=center,fontsize=10,style="setlinewidth(0.5)"];

The problem is that the fontnames are not between ".

dot exact output is:
"Warning: myfile: syntax error in line 8 near ','"

The first word is "Warning" but the message text itself indicates an "error".

The return code from dot is 0 that indicates that everything gone fine.

That made it really hard for me to found out what was wrong in one of my dot-using scripts. They catch all errors. But if dot return 0 there is no error.
So something goes wrong here.
No tags attached.

Appears to have been fixed by 2.38/2.39 which report Error (exit 1) and not a Warning.

I am not able to test that, because there is no PPA or deb file for my ubuntu-version. All offered debs are for older ubuntus. And I thought I am using an old version. ;)

So if you are sure, please close the ticket yourself.
