  Installed: 1:5.0.2-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 1:5.0.2-0ubuntu1
  Version table:

What is expected to happen in Draw via a terminal:
cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openoffice.org/+bug/138141/+attachment/2144240/+files/p0p1p2.odg

open the file > export to svg > open the svg in Draw and the two files should look the same.

What happen instead is the text is gone in the p0p1p2.svg file. The problem is that in the svg file the 'fill' attribute of the text is set to 'none' while it should have the color of the text.

WORKAROUND: replace fill:none with fill:#000000 in the xml code of the svg file and text will be rendered black. Until bug is solved, users can do this with a replace all command in a text editor.

No issue with export to SVG filter, issue with SVG import filter. Workaround would have been using the svgio filter using Insert -> Image

Resolved with bug 32248.
