Bug Description

Hello inscape developer team,

in OpenBSD we always run in "EvaluatorException("Invalid UTF8 string", NULL);" in src/util/expression-evaluator.cpp.
Inkscape::Ui::Widget::SpinButton call Inkscape::Util::ExpressionEvaluator(get_text().c_str() ... with an invalid UTF-8 string.

In OpenBSD we fix the problem with explicit convert the string to UTF-8. See below to attachment.
A complete error description you find here:

I hope this patch will find the way in inkscape.

Best regards,

Rafael Sadowski

Crash not reproduced on Windows XP, Inkscape 0.91 and trunk rev. 14666.

That said, the attached patch compiles correctly and local tests don't show obvious regressions.

@Raphael - Does the crash also occur when using other tools?

No, it only crash in inkscape on OpenBSD (i386/amd64) (reported by me and other inkscape OpenBSD users).
