You are missing the file cube.obj from share/extensions/Poly3DObjects.
This is a problem with your source code checkout, since this file does
exist in Bazaar. Try "bzr update".
Aha, I should've thought through
that enough to work it out (lacking
time, and in a hurry whenever I get into it... excuses ;) )
Turns out I'm still using the -C (ignore cvs/svn cruft on copy)
command with rsync, and for whatever reason it seems to be dropping
that stuff out.
Fatal issue solved!

You can try:
bzr checkout --lightweight lp:inkscape
This will reduce download size, since only the current revision is checked out.
From your description it seems like your ISP is throttling you,
there's nothing we can do about this.
The lightweight is what I was looking for -
It's a strange thing though, using the non-lightweight command, the
first 10-20 MB will sit on 300KBps consistently before dropping to
2KBps (this is reproducible)
Using the lightweight command, I never see the 300K - it starts at 2K
and stays there.
I'll give it a shot on a different network anyway, and see how it goes.
