Bug report #476
Print composer: WMS not saved to image export

in the print composer, when creating a map with SHAPE files and WMS layers, the print composer omits to write the WMS layer(s) into the image export (SVN export untested).

I find out that it works in general. The only problem is that QGIS request for WMS map in Print Composer is based on PrintComposer resolution (which is 300 DPI by default). The most of WMS servers have some limit for max image size which results in empty WMS layers in Print Composer (print or exporting as image). Decreasing of map print resolution obviously helps.
It would be nice to have some warning if it is not possible to get a layer from WMS in desired resolution or mechanism to resample WMS layer from lower resolution to print resolution (?).

I make some test in QGIS 0.9.2 and I have a particular situation.
I load a WMS layer from Lizardtech server (WGS 84) and then a shape (+proj=utm +zone=13 +ellps=clrk66 +datum=NAD27 +units=m +no_defs) coming from Spearfish60.
Then I reproject on fly to WGS84 and I see all the layers in the canvas.
I load the print composer and with my big surprise I see the WMS layer but I don't see the shape....
