I performed this upgrade immediately after I saw the Inkscape 0.40 
announcement and it hosed every single one of my GTK apps (of particular 
note: FireFox, FireBird, Nvu, GNUCash, Pan and GIMP). A roll-back of GTK 
solved the problem, but Inkscape still won't work.

As a side note: I have yet to get a functional Inkscape install (any 
version) on my SuSE 9.1 system. I'm waiting for Gentoo 2005.0 to be 
released and I'll switch to that. Portage has been very good to me on 
the business machine.
