Bug Description

In the attached file, I have a group that includes a connector from an object inside the group to an object outside it. When I enter the group, delete the connector, exit the group and try to move it, inkscape crashes.

Os: Windows 8.1
Inkscape versions: 0.91, inkscape-14423 (from

backtrace (of 14423, sorry, no debug symbols):
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the attached file using inkscape
2. Double click the box 11.2 to enter the group
3. Delete the connector connecting the box to the circle left of the group.
4. Click on the box 11.1 to exit the group.
5. Move the box with 11.2

Result: crash

Note that if you save the file just before moving the connector, close and reopen, it doesn't crash. Something wrong with the internal representation of the document, but not in the SVG apparently.
