Summary0002364: Adding Chuck Hagel to directed graph causes duplicate links to appear elsewhere in the graph.
DescriptionI have a graph representing interactions between public figures involved in the current Syria crisis. Adding a particular "Chuck Hagel" -> "Government of Russia" link causes three other links to be duplicated 5 times for no obvious reason. (See attached svg.)

I experienced this using the default graphviz packages that came with Ubuntu, and also the current stable "raring" amd64 debs from http://www.graphviz.org/Download_linux_ubuntu.php. [^]

The command I'm using is "dot -Tsvg syria.dot > syria.svg".

For what it's worth, you can see what I'm trying to do with this here: http://polink.org/i/665/n/syria-crisis [^]

As Stephen noted, we have recently found that the aspect attribute is not ready for use. Until we can get it fixed, we should make it unavailable.
