This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it

changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.

What do you mean with "Wrong geometry"?
When I open it in version 4.0.2, it gets imported correctly.

> @Samuel: dotted lines became solid lines

In LibreOffice imported in a very accurate geometry. Animation is good too.

Dotted lines are not solid lines but have higher density of dots, you may see dotted if you zoom a litte bit. In full screen they can be seen, also it wont be a problem in a presentition panels/screens.

Seems to be fixed.

Best regards,

On Ubuntu in 4.0.2 line is dotted in editing and show mode
on Fedora in 4.0 and 4.1 line is solid and in show mode program crashes

Status of bug should be WorksForMe if we do not know which patch fixed it
