Package: inkscape
Version: 0.92.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I am experiencing issue with Inkscape 0.92.1-1, when I try to ungroup an
imported artwork (e.g. EPS, AI or PDF) the former got stuck (100% core in use).

It can't be relative to my computer because it should be enough powerfull to
handle such basic task:

CPU:       Quad core Intel Core i7-6700K (-HT-MCP-) speed/max: 3899/4200 MHz
Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA GM204M [GeForce GTX 970M]
           Display Server: X.Org 1.19.2 driver: nvidia
           Resolution: 1920x1080 at 60.02hz
           GLX Renderer: GeForce GTX 970M/PCIe/SSE2
           GLX Version: 4.5.0 NVIDIA 375.39
Drives:    HDD Total Size: 250.1GB (80.0% used)
Info:      Processes: 229 Uptime: 4:32 Memory: 2492.9/16011.1MB
           Client: Shell (bash) inxi: 2.3.5

I tried to launch Inkscape from the terminal to discover something more but it
was useless:

inkscape --g-fatal-warnings beautiful_sunset_04.eps

It didn't display anithing and I have to kill it manually.

I can't even copy anything, the only workaround I found is doubleclick the
group to go into, and then I must to copy small groups of elements one by one
into a new document.

I can send further info if you would be so kind to explain me as to do that!

Best regards,
