I have Ubuntu 12.04 and Inkscape 0.48+devel r12347
Two weeks ago I installed the nightly build from Inkscape,
then decided against it and
uninstalled/reinstalled Inkscape from Ubuntu software center.
Since then the outset/inset function has generated incorrect results
for some shapes.
Here's a link to a file which demonstrates this problem:
Is this a bug or has my current installation gone awry?
Thanks for any feedback on this issue!
