Confirmed on Ubuntu Natty, using inkscape_0.48.1-2ubuntu2.

@upstream - any suggestions?

Not reproduced with Inkscape 0.48.0, 0.48.1 and 0.48+devel r10124 on OS X 10.5.8 (i386)
tested with the normal command line app (0.48.1, trunk) and packaged as osxapp (0.48.0, 0.48.1, trunk) - all with LANG="en_US.UTF-8".

- Are the paths in the tooltips for the entries in 'File > Open Recent…' correct?
- Does it also happen with the files listed in the GtkFileChooser dialog ('File > Open…') under 'Places > Recently Used'?

Could this be related to changes in GTK+ 2.24.x (which e.g. moved the file which stores the list of recently used files from '~/.recently-used.xbel' to '~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel')?

@~suv. It seems that this only happens with the Unity desktop manager.

Using the classic Gnome desktop:
* Tooltip paths show correctly in "File->Open Recent"
* Files open correctly from "File->Open Recent" in Inkscape
* Files open correctly from "Places->Recently Used"

Using Unity:
* No tooltips appear in "File->Open Recent" in Inkscape
* Same file opens, regardless of option chosen from "File->Open Recent" in Inkscape
* "Places->Recently Used" has been replaced by the Unity Places app. Files open correctly, however

It also happens with Unity-2D. Tested on Ubuntu 11.04 with all the latest updates, unity-2d version and Inkscape 0.48.1

Not sure if this is a bug in unity or a change of code somewhere that needs updating in Inkscape, or both. It's also been reported here for gitg and seems to be appearing in other programs as well.

This looks an awful lot like it relates to Unity.

@~macslow why are you so sure this is application-related?

The core of this issue seems to be

Same issue present in Inkscape built with Gtk+/Quartz on Mac OS X and the global menu bar integration (GtkOSXApplication from gtk-mac-integration) -> possibly an upstream issue in Gtk+, not specific to the global menu used in Ubuntu's Unity desktop?
