Summary0002201: No arrows are drawn in oldarrows.gv example
Descriptionoldarrows.gv used to work, but now none of the arrows draw. The problem is Graphviz, not the graph; the graph hasn't changed.
Steps To Reproducedot -Tpng oldarrows.gv > oldarrows.png
Additional InformationAfter some regression testing, I found that it renders fine in Graphviz 2.24.0 but no longer in 2.26.0.
TagsNo tags attached.

There was a non-backward-compatible change to the semantics of "dir" some time ago, in response to another bug report, such that for an arrowhead to be shown, it must *also* be enabled by the dir attribute.

I've changed oldarrows.gv to drop "dir=none", to use the default "dir=forward" for the head arrows, and to use "dir=back" for the tail arrows.
