Inkscape 0.48+devel r9842 on longer crashes when exporting the sample SVG to PDF:

@Maha - can you check the attached exported PDF file for errors? (Note that I do not have all fonts you used installed on my system, and of course the linked bitmaps are missing).

Fixed in Ubuntu Natty since inkscape_0.48.1-0ubuntu1. Still affects earlier versions of Ubuntu, but it probably won't qualify for a Stable Release Update... I guess it's a bit too obscure, and doesn't affect enough users for the SRU team to consider risking a patch.

Hopefully, we can get Inkscape 0.48.1 backported to Lucid, which would also solve this problem.
