Opacity indicator not initialized correctly (0 instead of 100%)

Bug #1463078 reported by Hachmann
This bug affects 3 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open a new document
2. Use any tool to draw a shape, with a fully opaque fill (as per default tool setting)
3. Check opacity indicator at the bottom left, it's always zero, but only the 'down' arrow is active.
4. Clicking on the down arrow makes the opacity go down to zero, and the indicator starts working as expected

The indicator will also start to show the correct value when the slider in the Fill&Stroke dialog is used.
(0.91, LM 64bit, as always ;) )

Experimental GTK3 builds failed to launch with more recent GTK3 versions, and the workaround for that crash also "fixed" the opacity spinbutton in the status bar (for GTK3 builds only):
* Bug #1375085 “GTK3: fails to launch GUI with GTK+ 3.14”

Based on related questions found in the irc logs, this could be related to changes in glib >= 2.38 (released in Sept 2013).

Not reproduced with lp:inkscape rev. 15095 (gtk3).

Since the trunk has switched to gtk3, the bug can be considered fixed in Inkscape 0.93.

Confirmed with lp:inkscape r15505 on Ubuntu 14.04:
$ apt-cache policy libglib2.0-0 | grep Installed
  Installed: 2.40.2-0ubuntu1
$ apt-cache policy libglibmm-2.4-1c2a | grep Installed
  Installed: 2.39.93-0ubuntu1
$ apt-cache policy libgtk-3-0 | grep Installed
  Installed: 3.10.8-0ubuntu1.6
$ apt-cache policy libgtkmm-3.0-1 | grep Installed
  Installed: 3.10.1-0ubuntu2
$ apt-cache policy libsigc++-2.0-0c2a | grep Installed
  Installed: 2.2.10-0.2ubuntu2

Seems still likely an Inkscape issue related to certain versions of upstream libs or C++ bindings?
