Inkscape crashes with CLI PDF export

Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

I'm trying to use Inkscape to do SVG to PDF conversion from a script. I'm using the -A argument to export PDF, and -f to specify the source SVG. With the same SVG data, the UI export works, but the CLI export crashes with

** Message: Error: Inkscape encountered an internal error and will close now.
Abort trap: 6

Works for me with Inkscape installed via MacPorts on OS X 10.7.4 (Xcode 4.3.2), as well as with current trunk builds (compiled outside of MacPorts).

From the attached SVG file:

inkscape:version="0.48+devel r10591 custom"

Do you have a custom version of the port 'inkscape-devel' installed on your Mac? Or was the file generated on a different system using an outdated version of the (unstable) development branch of Inkscape?

What is the output of 'inkscape --version' on your Mac?
Does the crash also occur with the current stable version
Does it also crash if you run the command manually (without the script)?

inkscape -A "Desktop/drawing-cli.pdf" -f "Desktop/drawing.svg"
