Inasmuch as my 0.41 Inkscape had stopped working (died on startup, 
something about not able to get extensions), I downloaded 0.42 from 

The good news: the "static" RPM installed fine in my FC4.  A few moments 
of playing with 0.42 and I agree, much more intuitive, little 
spontaneous messages in the border to help to know what to do. (Maybe 
Scribus could take a hint from this concept...)
The bad news: even a simple solid color rectangle SVG caused a Signal 11 
crash of Scribus.  Didn't matter if it was an "Inkscape SVG", or "Plain 
EPS and PNG (and presumably others) are workarounds for now.
