Bug Description

I have some .svg files used for realization of rubber stamps.
Inkscape 0.42.2 and Adobe SVG viewer open them without problem but Inkscape 0.47 don't render some text.
I tried on Windows XP and Windows 7.
I attach one file as example (bottom text on path is not rendered in 0.47).

This bug is still present in inkscape 0.48.1.
I am still using 0.46 because all new versions didn't render bottom text on path.

Reproduced on Windows XP, Inkscape trunk revision 11649.
Also fails with Batik-Sqiggle 1.7, but works correctly with Firefox 13.0.1.

Additionally, Inkscape crashes when trying to edit the text paths (pathcerc1 and path26) and outputs the following console error:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'Geom::ContinuityError'
  what(): lib2geom exception: Non-contiguous path (src/2geom/path.cpp:99)

status: Confirmed → Triaged

Applying a stroke color to the text paths prevents the crash, but doesn't solve the rendering issue. At least, you can modify it so that the stamp looks good with the new versions.

@Johan - The bug seems to be related to 2geom. Would you be willing to investigate?

Tested again on Windows XP with revision 12688. Now Inkscape doesn't render (and export) any text, but I still see the two circles.
