I've asked for more information - I may have jumped too soon filing a bug
report, but one of the people who reported problems with "the latest
release" is a pretty knowledgeable Inkscape user. I'll investigate it
further in a few days when I get to where I have better equipment and a
wider range of software to test with.

I think we're both going to have a mighty difficult time helping unless
we have more specific information. What is causing the user to report
that saving as DXF is broken? Are they getting an error in Inkscape when
creating the file? Are they getting an error in another app when reading
the file? I opened the flourish.dxf file in a text editor here and it
does look like a reasonable DXF file to me. I'd have to install some CAD
app to test it. I recall that some enhancements were made to the DXF
output during the last dev cycle that allow the DXF files to be read in
some software packages that weren't supported previously. I haven't
heard any reports yet of the DXF files being less compatible than
before. I really think we need just a bit more information before we can
even begin to start looking into the problem.
