With the problematic libxml2, rsvg-view segfaults, too:

$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/debug with-gdb-backtrace-to rsvg-view rsvg-view /usr/share/icons/Wasp/scalable/actions/gtk-go-back-ltr.svg
with-gdb-backtrace-to: application generated a backtrace

See attachment. (As already mentioned, the *rsvg* packages do not seem to offer any debugging symbols.)

What's the best way to inform/involve the librsvg maintainer(s), open a separate bug report there?
