Bug Description

I converted a text object(with fill and stroke[1.75px]), and a linked offset(with fill, blur[2.1], rounded joins&caps, xml radius[3]) to paths, combined the paths in 2 pieces (original text paths, offset paths), then grouped the 2 pieces, centered it vertically and horizontally [ctl+shft+A] after selecting 2 pieces and background polygon shape(with fill and stroke) [alt+shft+left click]. I then selected the offset with the point selector and tried to adjust the blur at which point it crashed, I have duplicated this process repeatedly...

Inkscape version (taken from attached SVG file):
   inkscape:version=" r9886"

The bug description and steps to reproduce seem to omit basic information: the SVG file in question seems to have been handed-edited (or modified with a custom extension or an external application) - the trigger for the crash AFAICT is related to the internal stylesheet, which defines a custom style for the path with id 'register_glow' which references a filter effect not present in the file:


If that filter definition is present - e.g. by adding one with the same id to the <defs> section - the crash does not occur when changing the blur via 'Fill and Stroke' dialog:
       stdDeviation="1.0" /></filter>

Could you share the steps how the internal style sheet is created, and kept up-to-date with the properties in the style attributes of the individual objects?

Simplified test case attached

Steps to reproduce the crash:
1) launch with current trunk
2) open attached file
3) 'Edit > Find' -> search for 'register_glow' in 'Properties'
4) open Fill&Stroke, blur selected object
--> crash

Simplified test case attached which has missing filter definition added: no crash with same steps.
