Reproduced with Inkscape 0.48.2 and 0.48+devel r10736 on Mac OS X 10.5.8 (i386):

The eraser tool fails to erase (cut-out mode) inside transformed groups.
Attached sample file reproduces the issue without resizing the page (which adds a transform to the top-level layer groups):

1) draw two rects
2) group them
3) duplicate the group and move the duplicate
4) enter the duplicated group ('Ctrl+enter' or double-click)
5) select all and try to erase in cut-out mode

Expected result:
the path drawn with the eraser tool is subtracted from the selected rectangles

Actual result:
Nothing gets erased or cut out.

Sorry for my poor explanation, I was in a hurry, but also wanted to report the bug. I tried in Windows version too, same results as ~suv describes.
