Bug Description

When I try to import the attached PDF file, Inkscape crashes. The PDF was created with Illustrator CS3, the only font it uses is Cambria Math (one of the new MS Office fonts), which is embedded in the PDF.

The font is also installed on my Linux system, where I try to open the file.

The error message I get is:

Pango:ERROR:break.c:1034:pango_default_break: code should not be reached

Emergency save activated!
Emergency save completed. Inkscape will close now.
If you can reproduce this crash, please file a bug at
with a detailed description of the steps leading to the crash, so we can fix it.
Pango:ERROR:break.c:1034:pango_default_break: code should not be reached

Probably duplicate of bug #605872 “pdf to svg fails with characters from Unicode Plane 1 (SMP)”: crash when opening PDF file with xits-math font, same pango error.

Crash reproduced with Inkscape 0.48 on OS X 10.5.8
Crash not reproduced with Inkscape 0.48+devel r9728 + patch from bug #369861

tags: added: crash importing pdf
Changed in inkscape:
