Okay, I did trace inkscape startup, and it appears there appears to be a
bug in libxml2, though I haven't determined what exactly yet.

Until I find exactly what is broken, you can either downgrade libxml2,
or remove the xml declarations from the files. That's what triggers the
bug. A lot of other files don't have the declaration and are read fine.
