Summary0002369: many dot algorithms get stuck if a well-known edge attribute gets an invalid value
DescriptionConsider the following dot file:

digraph ""
  edge [arrowhead=point]

- Run dot from the command line.
- Paste the file above (please note the well-known attribute 'arrowhead' having the unknown value 'point')
- There is no output.

One would expect either an explicit error or some layout. None is provided!
This is true at least for dot, neato and circo.
Additional InformationAttempting to generate a layout for:

digraph ""
  edge [arrowhead=]

ends up correctly by issuing an error message:

Warning: <stdin>:3: syntax error in line 3 near ']'

One would expect a similar (,consistent) behavior in the case where the attribute value is not recognized.
TagsNo tags attached.
