Summary0001059: Mrecord bounding boxes too small in svg output

Labels in an Mrecord do not fit in the bounding boxes. Is this a problem
with Graphviz or just a font problem having to do with svg files? Both
Firefox and Gimp render the long IP addresses as overlapping each other.
Gif output, for example, seems fine.

'/cygdrive/c/Program Files/ATT/Graphviz/bin/dot' -Tsvg -Kdot -o overlap.svg
Additional Information

[erg] I think it must have to do with fonts available to your svg viewers.
When I view your svg file with gimp, amaya and imagemagick, it looks fine

[owen] dding this line to my graph fixed things for me:

node [fontname="Courier New"];

Whatever the default font my system uses when no font is specified in the
svg file must not be what is expected by dot's layout.

[owen] Thank you for checking. Are you running on WinXP? If so, did you do anything
special with your fonts in Gimp? I'm a real newby with Gimp.

[erg] Ah, you're on Windows, which has its own font names and conventions.
To get the Times-Roman font intended, you probably need to say fontname="Times New Roman"
or just fontname="times".

[owen] Sorry for all of the replies, but I spoke too soon. Specifying "Courier New"
fixed my small test case (, but my larger graphs still show the
