the flags in the arc element are being set differently than before. In current trunk the arc looks like:

d="m 261.42856,249.50504 a 115.71429,40 0 0 0 115.71429,-40 l -115.71429,0 z"

where the three direction determining flags are set at (0, 0, 0). In Inkscape 0.48.4 these flags would have been set at (0, 1, 1)

Reproduced with r12676 on OS X 10.7.5.

The test with archived builds shows:
- nor reproduced with rev <= 12627
- reproduced with rev >= 12629.
this change seems to have been introduced in
- Revision 12629: Further changes to SPEllipse.

sorry about that, I think I had previously applied only a portion of the patch because I was only interested in bbox.

anyways, yes, that works perfectly, thanks for the fix!
