I think this would be really nice functionality to have added to Inkscape. I
get the following error when I run the bbox extension. (Can replicate by
opening a new file, drawing a spiral, selecting it, then choosing
effects->Visualize path->bounding box). I'm using inkscape compiled from SVN
rev. 16429 (Nov 4). - Tom

Attached is a quick extension I put together to create a rectangle for
the bounding box of each selected object, grouping all of the
rectangles. Unfortunately, it's rather slow for multiple objects
because it needs to invoke Inkscape to calculate the bounding box for
each one, but at least it's automated.
Put the two files in your extension directory (share/extensions), and
you'll see a new menu item called "Bounding Box" under Effects >
Hope this helps,
