Using master with a composer template which is loaded in python, the generated pdf includes the composer guides. Can we ensure that they are always hidden before rendering the pdf?

An example is attached.

Can you test using QgsComposition::renderPage() to export the pdf and confirm if this works correctly? renderPage sets a bunch of important things before rendering the page, so skipping it and using render() directly on a painter will result in gui elements like the guides showing up in the output.

Closing this out - resolved using advice given above. Thanks!
