Bug Description

Inkscape crashes whenever I try to combine paths, both with ctrl-k shortcut and with the Path->Combine menu option.
Windows XP SP3, rev 13209.

To reproduce:
 - open new document;
 - draw one (or more) shape (e.g. a rectangle);
 - select it (or all of them);
 - press ctrl-k or select Path->Combine;
 - crash!

Sorry for that. Dumb mistake, my testing apparently accidentally always had a style and patheffect applied to the first selected element.
Fixed in rev 13210.

Changed in inkscape:
assignee: nobody → Johan Engelen (johanengelen)
