Bug Description

I have exported a small graphic (a user defined symbol) from Corel Designer 12 into SVG.
If I open the SVG file it looks fine, but the export into eps with Inkscape 0.47prev4 the eps does not work.
GSView throw the error below:
Unrecoverable error: configurationerror in setpagedevice
Operand stack:
    false --nostringval--
Failed to open device or install ViewerPreProcess hook: returns -26

The export with Inkscape 0.46 works fine.

Attached you will find an example.

Reproduced with Inkscape 0.46+devel r22575 on OS X 10.5.8:
the exported EPS (or PDF) files appear empty.

The SVG drawing consists only of clones of symbols and glyphs in the <defs> section. This seems similar to bug #436962 “pdf not rendered correctly” where directly used 'svg:symbol' don't get exported to Cairo PDF either.

Same file imported into a new document with larger page size shows that the instantiated symbols are missing at the rendered position (displaced?) and the original definitions of the symbols are exported despite of not being referenced by a <use> element.
