I just tried it with inkscape 0.91-12+b1, and I couldn't reproduce it
(as I can't with the dev version 0.92~pre4 that I have locally).
Benda said he could reproduce with 0.91-11.

Also, this make me think the crash actually happened somewhere in
glib2.0, rather than inkscape itself.

Could you please try it again?
