Bug Description

Editing a guides properties causes the label to be set to sodipodi:guide

 1. Create a new document
 2. Create a guide
 3. Double click
 4. Enter anything into the label box
 5. Click OK

Result: the label is set to the string "sodipodi:guide" and re-editing or viewing the svg file in a text editor shows this is actually what gets saved.

He has a better patch, I'll apply it too. But yes, the same issue. I wonder why it didn't appear in my search for guides.

OK I've committed to r13228 not only the better memory management from the patch, but also a hidden bug in the colour selection. It would set the colour right away and thus cancel would not change the colour back. I've moved it so only OK will change the colour.
