[OpenLayers-Dev] Empty geometries causing errors in IE

Hi list,

Creating an empty geometry is fine in Firefox (SVG), but fails in IE
It goes wrong in VML.js in setNodeDimension. This method tries to create
a bbox, then tests for its existence, but not if there is something in

I'd like to start a discussion on whether OL should allow for empty
geometries or not. The least that should come out of the discussion is a
solution where the user doesn't get a javascript error for trying.

See ticket #1111 for a simple 'fix'.

Chris, Tim, anyone else?
