The maxent mode for sfdp has no effect
Steps to reproduce
I am trying to use the "maxent" mode as documented for the sfdp layout engine. However it doesn't appear to have any effect, nor do any messages get logged in verbose mode, which would indicate that the mode is being used. In fact it also looks like the edge lengths are being ignored. I am setting the mode using
-Gmode=maxent in the command line.
-Ksfdp -Gmode=maxent should run the sfdp layout engine in the maxent mode.
It doesn't look like this is happening.
