Bug report #2336
loading a project from the command line results in broken rendering
|Affected QGIS version:||master||Regression?:||No|

When calling qgis from the command-line with:
qgis --project path_to_project
The project gets loaded but the map canvas gets rendered incorrectly.
I am attaching two screenshots, one with the correct rendering and the one when I call qgis from the terminal with the --project flag.
Please note the incorrectly placed scale bar, north arrow and copyright info on the mapcanvas. Also please note that the map canvas seems to think its size is much smaller than reality. Also, on the vector layer that is rendered, only one point is visible, whereas the layer has more points.

It seems that this issue is related to the state of the qgis main window. I am usually working with qgis's window maximized. Now I noticed that if I load the project from the command-line and then hit the unmaximize button, the window gets shorter (as expected) and also the rendering is back to normal. If I then go back to a maximized window everything works fine. I think the project gets loaded before the window is maximized, and that causes the rendering to become messed up.

I can notice a slight change in scale when I follow these steps:
1- Open QGIS maximised, load a layer, save the project as it is
2- Reopen the project, unmaximise the window, when asked if to save the project, say no
3- Reopen the project, so that QGIS will remember last window size (unmaximised) while the project was saved full with the maximised window.
It is a small changement, not as big as the attached screenshot show, even if i change window size and proportions a lot. If you can share the point data and the project that causes the problem, I'll try to reproduce the bug.

Hello, bug triage...
I can't reproduce this anymore with QGIS 2.13 master using whatever decoration (north arrow/copyright/scale bar) and whatever data (points/polygons). There is also no problem with the size of the main QGIS window and the loading of the project from the command line.
I am closing this bug...
