Cycles renders particle emitter in linked group even when emitter is set not to render
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

How to reproduce it (easy way, open attached file and render it).
Or ...
- create a particle object, set Emitter rendering to False
- create a group with this object
- save and open a new file where you link in the group and add as group instance
- render it .... the emitter is visible :/

Bottomline: When rendering linked objects with hair, the emitter is rendered or not according with the Emitter checkbox, but, if the link is to a group, the emitter is always rendered.

Tested in 2.66 and trunk (>266)
