Inkscape internal error on accessing Document Properties

Bug Description

Binary package hint: inkscape

1. On a Kubuntu machine with Inkscape installed, run Inkscape and choose File/Document Properties from a blank document.

Expected: The document properties should appear.

Actual: Inkscape closes with an "Internal error" dialog.

A backtrace obtained with gdb follows. My guess is that Inkscape requires some icon or icon theme which is assumed to be available on GNOME-based systems but is not correctly brought in as a dependency when installing on Kubuntu.

I can confirm this bug: when I open inkscape and try to choose "Document properties", it crashes with an Internal Error. This is a showstopper, so I would priorize this bug pretty high. Currently, inkscape is mostly unusable like this.
