Bug report #11198
Text annotations are not rendered when saving the map canvas as image
|Affected QGIS version:||master||Regression?:||No|

Text (and other types of) annotations are not rendered when saving the map canvas as an image through QGIS' Project -> Save as Image... menu item.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new project
2. Add a dataset layer (doesn't really matter what you use here)
3. Add a Text Annotation on the canvas
4. Save the canvas as an image via the Project -> Save as Image... menu item
5. Open the saved image, notice the absence of the text annotation
Flagging as blocker, it's a real bummer.

Nathan, my memory remembers a time when I could Save as Image... with annotation drawn, but then again I could be wrong. I was discussing this with Martin, it might have regressed after the MTR mega-commit.
I will try to test this out on QGIS 2.0 or 2.2 to confirm it is indeed a regression and my memory's still somewhat trustworthy ;).
