I recently had a problem with text that was kerned manually without me
knowing it. It would probably have helped if there were some small
indicator that it was 'manually kerned'. Things I can come up with:
- change color of textbox when using the texttool
- add small indicator to the textbox
Anybody else have an idea?

Just select the text and you will see all kerns as overlappings or
gaps in the selection rectangle.

The problem is actually not with kerned text as such but with absolute
kerning ("x" attribute on tspans). Inkscape apparently is not smart
enough to update the glyph positions on such text. I think it should
be possible, for example by converting the absolute kerning to
relative on the first edit. If relative-kerned text can be translated
into positions of glyphs for rendering, then the reverse
transformation (from positions of glyphs to relative offsets) should
also be possible.
