Fine, fine :)
It's not really bad ui, I just didn't find it myself. But: talk to the
inkscape developers about it. In inkscape the transform window _is_ in
the object menu item. And I actually think it also makes sense.

Not nice to not be able to, but fine. But then it still shouldn't mess
up things. It's not quite true, that you can't. You can't do this with
groups... that is _very_  (!!) buggy even for not being able to do so,
but single objects (at least rectangles I tried) work just fine.
