Rainer, I can confirm that your understanding is correct:  when using
File->Export, I check the "Selection" checkbox, but when I click on "Save" a
"PDF Options" dialog appears which has the "All" radio button preselected in
the "Range" set.  If this button is left as-is, the entire drawing is exported.
 It's necessary to change the radio button to "Selection" in order to exclude
the non-selected parts of the drawing from the output.

However, this is only a partial workaround:  the page size of the exported
document is the entire page instead of the size of the selection.  So it's
still impossible to export drawings to PDF for use as graphics in other
applications.  This problem appears to be unique to the PDF export; when
exporting as EPS or PNG, for example, the image size is the same as the
selection size.

So for this bug to be fixed two changes must be made:

1. The value of the "Selection" checkbox in the "Export" dialog must propagate
to the subsequent "PDF Options" dialog.

2. The page size of the exported PDF should match the size of the selection.
