Likely the same as bug #937835, bug #983843, and bug #1049277.

Maybe these reports should be unlinked as duplicate of
- Bug #941317 “inkscape crashed with SIGSEGV in getObject()”
since bug #937835 itself is fixed in Inkscape 0.48.4.

No information available to help provoke this bug, nor to check whether it is fixed ...
The added null check in this patch should prevent this crash though.

The attachment "1163241.patch" seems to be a patch. If it isn't, please remove the "patch" flag from the attachment, remove the "patch" tag, and if you are a member of the ~ubuntu-reviewers, unsubscribe the team.
