@ Stuart


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.
