were vectorised bitmaps produced with autotrace/potrace and afterwards edited in

When I try to import the files into scribus, it either crashes with
signal 0000006 or freezes and needs to be killed.

stativ.svg works fine here. It takes forever to import, and it's a screaming nightmare to manipulate on the page (Scribus has real problems with selections of many tiny objects - takes aages drawing selection rectangles) but it imports just fine.

The attachment is actually a screenshot of stativ.svg, not logo.svg .

When manipulating the imported object I did see:

*** attempt to put segment in horiz list twice
*** attempt to put segment in horiz list twice

on the console.

Note that I was testing with late 1.2.2cvs .

logo.svg is fine too. Both exhibit the same problems as text converted to outlines though, in terms of being very difficult to manipulate due to selection border redraws taking so long, and having the weird "double scan" effect when dropped at the end of a drag.

stativ.svg had

*** attempt to put segment in horiz list twice

errors when I rendered it in the GIMP, too. I wonder where that error is coming from?

bumping this to 1.2.4, so it does not get lost in the shuffle. This is a symptom of some memory handling with complex drawings in general.

bumping to 1.3, as 1.3.2cvs is vastly better and a new SVG importer should help. I don't know if this fixable in 1.2.x.

Christoph, please retest

no change. stativ.svg causes freeze, logo.svg leaves the doc uneditable (scrbus becoming dead slow). Loading any of both files in or 1.3.4cvs slows down the whole ui (not only scribus) dramatically.
