Hi

Interesting!
Tested and verified to be crashing on;

    Windows 7 Pro - Stable Inkscape 0.48.4 r9939 and dev. version 0.48+devel r12339
    Windows 8 Pro Build 9200 - Stable Inkscape 0.48.4 r9939
    Ubuntu 13.04 - Stable Inkscape 0.48.4 - r9939.

From the "Crash-Report" in Ubuntu;
    inkscape crashed with SIGSEGV in pathv_to_linear_and_cubic_beziers()
Which operating system and what version of Inkscape do you experience this with?

See my earlier comment: This issue has already been reported in Inkscape's bug tracker (multiple times) and has been confirmed as bug. No need for regular users to further test this, unless one enjoys to intentionally crash Inkscape.

Sorry, I was simply responding to the OP's request, thinking wether it was just in his Xubuntu
or anywhere else.

I have noticed there seems to be many programs (Apps.) that crash when undo(s) are involved.
My guess is that, for a simple request like "undo", it's not so simple a task to program correctly,
especially regarding the shifting around of various temporary buffers in memory and the like.
