Bug Description

On Inkscape, switching to Outline Mode with Control-Num5 results in a blank canvas being displayed. Objects can still be selected, and edited, but there's no display of paths.

Architecture: x86_64

Steps to reproduce: Edit a moderately complex document, and switch to outline mode. No display.
