Tool crashes with weekly printscale and project start date between 2023/9/25 and 2023/9/29

@startgantt

printscale weekly
project starts 2023/9/29

[Test] lasts 1 day

Looks like the problem here is the fact that the printscale is set to weekly but the project only lasts 1 day (also happens for other dates), but still the crash shouldn't happen.

My comment about some dates working came from a more extensive example.  After I stripped it down to a minimal test case, I did not realize that it also stopped working for dates that had previously worked.

I first had this:

@startgantt

printscale weekly
saturdays are closed
sundays are closed

project starts 2023/9/25

[Test] lasts 1 day

@endgantt

Here, if I change the project start date to 2023/9/24, it works, but 2023/9/25 to 2023/9/29 does not.  It seems that if I put the project start date on a day for which I've said something (Saturday and Sunday being closed, in this example), then it works, otherwise not.

Thanks for the feedback.

This is now fixed!

Still, the drawing is ugly :-)
