I have also experienced this problem a few weeks ago (same error message).
Very frustrating, but even then I simply didn't want to switch to 
another drawing program.

Yesterday I worked with IPE a lot again, and for some reason, it didn't 
happen again!

I don't know if anything had changed in the meantime (I always forget when i
'port update'  :-) ), but fact is that it has worked flawlessly for a 
full day.

I suggest to 'port selfupdate' and 'port update' some things; maybe it 

Best regards and good luck,


P.S. now working with 7.0.14, via macports
