Bug Description

I received this svg file and it seems to have been created by inkscape.

Opening it causes:
>>inkscape Maia\ and\ Frank\ Figure\ 1.svg
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'Geom::ContinuityError'
  what(): lib2geom exception: Non-contiguous path (../../src/2geom/path.cpp:99)

Emergency save activated!
Emergency save completed. Inkscape will close now.
If you can reproduce this crash, please file a bug at
with a detailed description of the steps leading to the crash, so we can fix it.
Aborted (core dumped)

I am running
>>inkscape --version
Inkscape 0.48+devel r (Oct 9 2013)

on Kubuntu 13.04

Based on tests with archived builds:
- not reproduced with rev <= 10836
- reproduced with rev >= 10838
the connector-related crash seems to have surfaced after the lib2geom updates in r10837/10838:

Crash no longer reproduced with r12716 - thx Johan!

Any issues with the initial layout of connectors after loading the file are tracked on other (existing) reports.

Changed in inkscape:
assignee: nobody → Johan Engelen (johanengelen)
milestone: 0.49 → none
status: Confirmed → Fix Released
