I have the same problem, and basically cannot use Inkscape at all most
of the time. The bug is triggered when either of the LibreOffice and
Matlab are in use. Since I'm using Xubuntu 14.04, xfce clipboard manager
is maybe also at fault.

UPDATE: After further investigation it turned out to be a problem related to
the copy operation, in combination with a totally unrelated running Java
Reading some followups and other bug reports, it seems to be caused by the
new clipboard management system (introduced as a fix for the bug #170185), as
reported in bug #421597
So far these applications are known to randomly trigger an input/output
extension (on linux):
- FreeRapid Downloader
- xfce4-clipman-plugin 1.1.3
- xfce4-settings-helper (Xfce 4.8)
- Team Viewer (teamviewerd 10.0.36)
The original report was this:
I'm getting this error when I try to edit a text object created previously
with a font that's not available in this system.
It looks like Inkscape has problems to resolve the font substitution and
displays the error message in a popup window that keeps appearing again and
again, leaving no other remedy than closing inkscape and reopening it.
The error message is attached.
