Excerpted from a recent posting on GIS-StackExchange [[http://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/143148/displaying-symbology-outside-map-canvas-window-extent?noredirect=1#comment207982_143148]]:

Say we have equally distributed x,y mesh vector file. Each coordinate has a map-unit based diameter circle symbology. If we zoom into a region of the map canvas far enough, some centroids exist outside of the map canvas view, thus they will not be displayed.

Is there any (pyqgis) means to set a buffer surrounding the map canvas extents equal to the map-circle symbol diameters to prevent border coordinates from being omitted from render?
Or as someone noted on the GIS-StackExchange; might this be a Bug in the latest release (2.8.1)?
