Rotation of ESRI Shapefile with transparency in Print Composer

By rotating a map [add image] in the print composer [Item Proprieties -> Main Proprieties -> Map -> Map rotation], when the transparency of Shapefile layer (in the project) is not set at 0, gives a mistake if you're exporting the file.

That doesn't occur if the transparency of the layer in the project is set to "0" or for raster with/without transparency.

Enclosed screenshot of the print composer (the map is cached) and the output with rotation of 330 degrees. The transparency of the green layer is set at 5%, 0% for the red. You can see how the green layer is cut (it should looks like the print composer) and how the other layer are fine.

Hint: You can see that the Shapefile with transparency doesn't follow the rotation

Can you confirm whether you still see this issue in current master (v 2.3)? I can't reproduce this issue and suspect it has been fixed.

Dear Nyall

I tested on current master (v. 2.3). The issue has been fixed. Great!
Thanks a lot, I was really looking for the implementation.

Should I close the bug report ? (sorry I am a newbie, it's my first bug report)
