I wanted to print a document made with inkscape but instead of my graphics I 
got a stack trace from my printer with the error "offending operator: 0a".
After google it seems that inkscape uses cairo to generate it's ps (or pdf) 
output and the cairo lib inserts a '\n' character into the hex code of the 
embedded fonts in the ps file. There is a patch for ubuntu here:


which makes the output work, the file is printed correctly.

So, is this a cairo bug? Is there a chance that this patch gets included in 
the next version?
