Summary0002098: Layout algorithm "overflowed"

I have a reasonably-sized graph (number of nodes is a couple thousands at most) that "overflows" the layout algorithm.

Some of the clusters are given funny bounding boxes and overlap one another. In turn, nodes that were supposed to be inside those clusters are in "free-roam" mode.

I attached the .dot graph to this message so that you could give it a try and see for yourself.

I have used both "gvLayout()" in my program and "dot -Tps -o". Both output similar results.

I am using graphviz_2.26.3-5_amd64.deb.
I am also aware that the latest stable release is 2.28, but I couldn't get around to solving the dependencies.

Thankyou for your help.


Steps To Reproduce>> dot -Tps -o
>> evince


call gvLayout() from the C library
Additional InformationThis graph represents the program flow of a virtualization gate. [^]

Sorry about the duplicates.

The issue tracker wouldn't let me attach dot, 7z or files.
Apparently, pressing "previous page" still submits the issue, contrary as to what the tracker seemed to hint.

I have some good news.

I got rid of the "port not recognized" warning messages, and it seems to have fixed the layout "overflow".

These warnings looked harmless to me, as all smaller graphs worked fine. I don't know whether it is an intended behavior or an unexplored case, so I have attached the working .dot file for comparison.

Have a nice day,
