That's a pity, it would be nice to have a general solution to this problem
for arbitrary data displayed in the cell output. Perhaps some kind of
widget which runs nbconvert and selects the output from one cell would be a
solution. For this specific tikz magic, the easiest thing was to add an
extra argument to save a copy of the file.

Anyway, I have created a modified version of this tikz magic with these two
fixes, shared here in case it is useful to anybody else:
