AFAICT the 'Symbols' dialog loads and displays any kind of <symbol>

SVG files created from PDF files via poppler-cairo (inkscape's own
'Adobe PDF via poppler-cairo' import extension, or e.g. with pdftocairo
(from poppler), with pdf2svg or via printing to file (SVG) from Evince)
have any text from the original PDF outlined, and the paths for the
characters are stored as (AFAICT regular SVG) symbols inside a group in
the <defs> section. Inkscape (stable and trunk) renders such files fine.
Opening the 'Symbols' dialog for such a document (to see the symbol
preivews of the embedded outlined characters) however crashes Inkscape
(backtrace from OS X attached, same crash happens on Ubuntu 12.10).
