Splunk PDF export issue with "empty" pdf

Actually the view below shows "No results found." in the browser by opening the view and as soon as I try to generate a pdf I get an empty graph with just the two axis shown.
(Printing the View and THEN exporting it to pdf works, so the web "output" is def. fine)
I would like to get rid of the graph with the axis and get a result in the pdf as in the web-gui: No results found.

How to either exclude an empty report from the pdf generation or output the fact that no data matches the query ?

Splunk Vers. 5.0.1

This the limitation in the Splunk. Not supported in the latest version aswell.

Update

This seems to be a bug in splunk. At least that's what I got in an support email.
So if this happens to you, update to a later version of splunk
