the culprit

This may be the wrong component. I am lost, it could be anywhere.

Description of problem:
I have an illustrator file which I converted to svg with inkscape.
When I print it, one of the characters changes colour to grey.
I have isolated this colour changing character in its own svg file: it still changes colour to gray when printed. Yes, I am printing in colour.

If I print from Firefox, it comes out the wrong colour.
From Inkscape, the wrong colour.
If I insert it into LibreOffice, and print it: wrong colour.
Create a PDF from LibreOffice, and print that: wrong colour.

But if I transfer that PDF to a Mac, and print it on a Mac, I get the correct colour.

And printing from within Inkscape on Windows prints the correct colour too.

So something Linux specific is happening here.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the attached file c.svg in your favourite svg-understanding program (do not use a program that rasterises it, like the gimp).
2. Print in colour
3. Notice it changed colour

Actual results:

Expected results:

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2016-11-24 08:52:40 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '23'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 6 Ryan Rowe 2016-11-29 16:02:52 EST
With Fedora 25:

If I print from Firefox, it comes out the wrong colour.
From Inkscape, nothing ever leaves the printer.
From eog, I get colour!!
