A screenshot showing the origional in inkscape, the pasted text in libreoffice,
and the exported PDF in sumatraPDF

Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download the following PDF:
2. Open the pdf in inkscape 0.48.2 r9819, using the following settings (these
are the defaults):
Select page 4 out of 96
[don't] clip to media box
precision: 2.0
text handling: import text as text
[do] replace PDF fonts by closest-named installed fonts
[do] embed images
3. Start libreoffice writer, and make a new text document (ctrl-N)
4. In inkscape, select all, and copy (ctrl-A and ctrl-C)
5. In libreoffice writer, paste (ctrl-V)
6. Export the file to PDF, with the following settings (these are the defaults)
[ ] lossless compression
[X] JPEG compression, quality: 90%
[ ] Reduce image resolution
[ ] Embed OpenDocument file
[ ]PDF/A-1a
[ ]tagged PDF
[X]create PDF form, submit format FDF
[ ]allow duplicate field names
[X]export bookmarks
[ ]export comments
[ ]export automatically inserted blank pages
[X]embed standard fonts
7. Open the exported pdf file in SumatraPDF.

Current behavior:
The text "SOT-23 Pin Diagrams" is not exported to PDF correctly. When the text
is zoomed in sumatraPDF, it's visible that the 3 is not smooth, but instead it
looks like it has been composed out of lines and curves. 

Expected behavior:
The text should have been exported as text, so it would have been smooth.
