FYI, I have posted this video a while ago:

And this bug is still present in latest Fedora 11, the strange thing
is that inscape works if you have bitstream-vera-sans-fonts package
installed, but try
yum remove bitstream-vera-fonts (F10)
yum remove bitstream-vera-sans-fonts (F11)

Now try to type some text and change it's font in inkscape...

You can do this as a prank if somebody leaves his desktop unattended
just remove bitstream-vera-fonts package and ask him to do something
in inkscape with text ;)

I'll report this bug to fedora and ask that bitstream-vera-fonts gets
installed as a dependency for inkscape.
