Bug Description

The openclipart.org web site is currently undergoing maintenance, and displays a stock "maintenance" web page for all requests.

Inkscape segfaults when searching for a drawing using the "Import from openclipart" dialog box, with the following message:

http://openclipart.org/media/feed/rss/happiness:8: parser error : EntityRef: expecting ';'
 type="text/css" href="http://www.openclipart.org/style.php?site=default&widgets
                                                                               ^
Emergency save activated!
Emergency save completed. Inkscape will close now.

Please provide information about your OS and Inkscape version (apparently you are using Inkscape 0.48.1).

Crash reproduced with Inkscape 0.48.1, 0.48.2 and 0.48+devel r10736 on Mac OS X 10.5.8 (i386)
The console message about the parser error only happens in Inkscape 0.48.1, not later versions, but Inkscape crashes with each of them:

Program received signal EXC_BAD_ACCESS, Could not access memory.
Reason: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at address: 0x00000000

Segmentation fault

Reproducible if I choose "import from openclipart", put in any search text and press "search" button.

Albeit openclipart.org is not down/maintenance, inkscape crashes.

Inkscape 0.48.3.1 r9886, Gentoo 64bit

openclipart.org is not down, but its feeds are currently broken (see also bug #989257):
