Not reproduced with Inkscape 0.48.1 and 0.48+devel r10325
Reproduced with latest cairo-rendering branch, Inkscape 0.48+devel r10330 and r10416
(both with cairo 1.10.2 and cairo 1.11.2)

-> regression introduced with the merge of the cairo-rendering branch.

Trigger appears to be SVG filter effects - random file used for the backtrace:

A linked or embedded bitmap does not trigger the crash, nor do regular paths or an empty document.

Same crash and backtrace when saving a copy as PDF in current trunk, e.g. with the test file attached to
Bug #808898 “Inkscape does not correctly render svg and pdf files when using complex filters.”

not entirely sure if this is the same bug, but I think it is. On Windows XP, bzr rev 10444, if I load the attached file, which contains just a blurred rectangle:

@Alvin Penner

Can't reproduce it on debian unstable.
Rectangle is not blurred, here.

Changed in debian:
