Bug Description

Can be reproduced every times with trunk on Win32.

If I import a picture (PNG or JPG) with the option "Link", a crash occurred.
That's not the case when "Embed" is selected.

Could you please rename your preferences.xml file (don't remove the file in case we need it to investigate) and retry?

I'm using revision 11129 on Windows 7 - 64 Bits.
Also tried with a clean preferences.xml, it didn't change anything.
This is the backtrace:

Unfortunately gdb is currently broken with the trunk version...

Could you please try to run Inkscape in application compatibility mode (choose XP, and if possible 32 bits)?

It looks like a devlibs issue, so you can also try Inkscape (it uses the same devlibs as the trunk) and see if it crashes too ( if not officially out, but the binaries are available at

Same thing in compatibility mode, 32-bits is mandatory as it's a 32 bits application.

I tried with and it's working fine with it. I retried immediately with trunk version (in case it was a preferences.xml issue) and the crash is still there.

Does it crash with a specific file, file type or path?
Could you please attach (if it's not too big) a bitmap that causes the crash?

It crash will all files, any BMP, PNG, JPG.

I've just compiled the latest trunk revision on Windows 7 (32 bits), and still can't reproduce the bug. Tried with PNG and JPG files, by drag and drop, open and import, and everything worked as expected.
I guess we have to wait until the gdb issue is fixed...

I've attached the executable if you want to test it against your installation, maybe you can try with it to see if it's related to a compilation issue or a system one.

Doesn't crash with your executable file. Maybe a compilation or devlibs issue.
Are you sure you have the latest devlibs (r29)? Did you try to compile from scratch (after a btool clean)?

Could not reproduce the bug either on vista 64 bit 0.48.x r9945 or trunk r12126.
If no other people can reproduce this bug, I'd propose to close it.
