Thank you for the info!
I'm not a new Debian user: when I said I removed deb-multimedia, I
implicitly meant I removed all its packages too, although I reinstalled
them after I realized deb-multimedia was innocent -- because I needed them.
I think you might know that the problem is deeper than Inkscape's case.
Several reports could be made for packages that aren't even remotely
related to deb-multimedia.
Last but not least, I like Debian and hope it won't have a fate like
that of Gnome3, although I see similarities in attitudes nowadays.
