That's unfortunate, and you should file a complaint or bug report with Gentoo.

The file format hasn't changed, but there was a bug in a file loading plug-in 
that prevented documents from being opened in 1.3.6. This bug has 
been fixed in 1.3.7svn, so your best option is probably to check out 1.3.7svn 
and build this one from scratch.
