Reproduced with Inkscape 0.48+devel r9686 on OS X 10.5.8 when exporting a file created from template 'font_glyph'

Possibly caused by incomplete layer structure of "layer 1" in the template?

Crash not reproduced when exporting a new SVG file from the modified FontForge template of r9693 to XCF.
I haven't tested the SVG file in FontForge though - does it handle Inkscape's layer tags?

All I can say is that a Glyph created with this template in Inkscape is correctly imported in FontForge.

I don't see a crash using inkscape_0.48.1-2ubuntu2 (Ubuntu Natty). However, I can't save as XCF. I get a "This extension requires at least one non empty layer." message, and a zero-byte output file.
