I just successfully built inkscape svn on Windows XP using Mingw and GTK
from Modevia and have found a problem with the file save as dialog.
Every time I try to save a file I created in Inkscape, it errors out
with "Inkscape encountered an internal error and will close now."
It also affects the save a copy dialog. The only workaround I found is
to save a blank file when I start Inkscape, and use the save button
after some work has been done to avoid the file save as dialog.
GDB backtrace says:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x77c478c0 in strlen () from C:\WINDOWS\system32\msvcrt.dll

This error also happens on recent inkscape.modevia.com win32 builds. The
stable 0.45.1 is unaffected.
Unfortunately I have no experience in GDB. What can I do to help?
