Map polluted by circles ?!

This is a pretty weird bug I'm facing.
My map contains circles that move around whenever I zoom.
The circles seem to be associated to the features on the map as if it was a decoration.
The point layer has these circles drawn somewhere on the bottom-right so that the requested marker (simple marker) falls outside of the circle.
The line layer (a single line) has a single circle drawn, centered near the centroid (but sometimes more on a side).
The circle size is independent from map zoom.

The same behavior happens with 2.8.2 and with master.

I'm attaching a short screencast taken with master

This happens if you save a project in master and then open in 2.8. You can fix it by turning off diagrams for the layer in 2.8. Otherwise it's just due to a change in the project file format required to allow switching off diagrams without losing their settings.

But I never enabled diagrams in any of the two versions, how did they get enabled ?

Was this actually fixed by Nyall via this c449b95dcb4c37fbc687b4286c68d59758c28be3 ?
Re-opening for confirmation (was previously closed as "wont-fix")

Should be fixed now - can you reopen if you still see this after that commit?

#6 Updated by Sandro Santilli over 8 years ago

Seems to be fine now. Could you please set TargetVersion to the earliest version this was fixed in ?
It sounds like it would be 2.8.3, right ?
Giovanni: there's no 2.8.3 yet in the TargetVersion list, could you add it ?
