suggested patch from other forum to workaround librsvg bug

games-puzzle/gweled-0.9.1-r2 (~) segfaults on startup before opening first window.

It looks like it has been rootcaused to be due to a librsvg bug that gweled abuses to crash.  >=librsvg-2.42.3 (not currently in portage) fixes the bug, or a patch can be applied to gweled to deal with the broken librsvg.  The patch copied/attached/tested here also improves gweled error handling regardless of librsvg used.

Applying the patch, the game seems to now play correctly with the current gnome-base/librsvg-2.40.20 (tested on amd64, x86)
