Apologies for answering so incredibly late but dealing with external converters had little priority in comparison other issues.
Yesterday I made some fixes to the external converters usage (svn revsion 1826):

wrt what you wrote: FIM opens the PNG file created by inkscape via the command you listed (using the full-length switches though).

It might be the defects you've seen were because of concurrency between unfinished converter program and FIM continuing running.

Now FIM should give up to 15 seconds for the conversion, and only then continue. So FIM will likely avoid oepning a "partially created" file.

I hope you're still into FIM to appreciate the change ;-)

When displaying SVG file using FIM, the SVG file is not displayed properly. The SVG's root width/height values and viewBox attributes are not respected. FIM automatically scales up the image to fit everything.

It is my understanding that FIM is the responsible for rendering the SVG. The SVG is first converted using Inkscape. However, I think the conversion is not occurring properly.

Attached screenshots shows the SVG file being rendered using FIM and it being rendered with the default image viewer of Ubuntu. Notice how even when using "--no-auto-scale", it still renders the SVG file improperly. If I manually convert the SVG file to PNG using Inkscape, the resulting PNG is rendered properly. I use the following command to convert the SVG to PNG: "inkscape -z circle-cut.svg -e circle-cut-inkscape-convert.png".

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Testing environment:
VirtualBox (on Windows 10) Version 5.1.14 r112924 (Qt5.6.2)
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
FIM built from latest release fim-0.6-trunk.tar.gz (11-Mar-2017 11:21) https://download-mirror.savannah.gnu.org/releases/fbi-improved/
