Bug Description

I tried to give a very detailed description on a site of StackExchange:

I was able to test the bug on Linux (Ubuntu 12.04) with these specs: (see also the link above)
Architecture: amd64

and on Mac OS X 10.8.4 with XQuartz 2.7.4
with InkScape Inkscape 0.48.2 r9819

Technically not a bug - a horizontal (or vertical) line has only one dimension, and the filter effects region thus too (i.e. the blur is not visible).

- Combine the line with the spiral (the bounding box of the resulting paths as two dimensions), and blur the combined path.
- Group the line with the spiral, and blur the group, instead of the individual objects.

In the future, please attach sample SVG files directly to the bug report, instead of referring to an off-site page with screenshots only. Having original SVG files available would ease bug triage a lot, and be much appreciated by the members of the Inkscape bug triage team.
