Bug#322965: eog won't zoom in on SVG files

Package: eog
Version: 2.10.2-1
Severity: normal

Eog does not properly zoom in on SVG files.  Rather than re-rendering the SVG into a higher resolution, it looks like it keeps the same rendering and instead zooms in on the rendered image.  The result is that things become blurry as you zoom in, even though this is exactly what SVG is supposed to avoid.

The same thing occurs to a smaller degree when zooming out.

To fix it the SVG needs to be re-rendered on each zoom.  Using rsvg this should be quite easy.  Rendering may be slow so it should be properly queued up.
