OK, this bug has been taken care of by Cyrille now anyway, but
this does raise a point I've been wanting to mention...

I find myself relatively rich in free time at the moment, and
I'd like to help out with Dia. I'm not sure of the best way to
go about this and I was wondering if one of the maintainers or
more mature project members could suggest something.
I'd like to trying working on something like that, and submit a
patch at the end (have to figure out how to use patch too --- I
know I'm missing a lot of knowledge here but I've just left
Imperial College with a Master's Computing degree and I'm a
fast learner (sorry about that bit of boasting there but I'm so
glad to be free of uni. at last! Woohoo! Real world here I
come! Or something...)

The easiest way to do stuff that doesn't conflict with ours and isn't too

For some ideas for stuff to do, see

Those are all our enhancement requests.

A new import/export filter is also always welcome and fairly easy to do.
