I noticed a small, yet annoying bugs with inkscape:
1. On a German keyboard, the Y and the Z key are exchanged (Hence the layout is named QWERTZ instead of QWERTY). The layout is normally handled fine by console or X11. But strangely, in inkscape they are changed back again. So each time I want to undo something with Ctrl+Z, I must actually press Ctrl+Y. This is quite confusing, obviously.

Yes it is. And, to clarify once again, the mapping is correct in all other Gnome and KDE applications.
I was able to fix the bug for me: In /usr/share/inkscape/keys/default.xml, ll. 226-234, I exchanged the "y"s/"Y"s with "y"s/"Z"s and vice versa. Now the shortcuts work as expected.
The question is now if other German users have the same problem. I'm very sure my locale settings are correct, I also have the LINGUAS in make.conf set correctly.
By the way, thanks for the quick ebuilding of inkscape 0.45. :)
Try w/ >=0.45.1 please.
