Residing interpreter line disabling entire script

Bug Description

The entire JessyInk script is disabled when creating an SVG with a standard Ubuntu and Inkscape installation. This seems to be due to a residing interpreter line right after the opening script block:
     ns1:version="1.5.5">#!/usr/bin/env js
Removing the "#!/usr/bin/env js" makes the SVG work in all my browsers (Firefox and Chromium).

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and Inkscape 0.48. As can be seen from the above, bundled JessyInk is version 1.5.5.

Thanks for filing this bug. I know about the problem and already talked to the people on the Inkscape developer mailing list. It seems that the line was added during the packaging process for the "deb" package since the absence of a hash-bang line was flagged by an automated check. I believe the issue will be resolved in version 0.48.2 of Inkscape, which has been released a couple of days ago.

Just committed a fix for the problem in the form of a guard clause that comments out the hash bang lines in js files if present.
