  Indian Rupee: <ctrl-shift-u> 2 0 b 9 <enter> reports "unprintable"

Status in Inkscape: A Vector Drawing Tool:
Status in “inkscape” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: inkscape

  The standard method for entering Unicode symbols (such as the Indian
  Rupee Sign) into Gtk+-based applications is the sequence:

    <ctrl-shift-u> 2 0 b 9 <enter>

  doing this in Inkscape results in a report that the character is not
  printable and no character being inserted.  However copying-and-
  pasting "₹" directly allows it to be inserted.

  Ideally Inkscape would not try to be too-clever-for-its-own-good by
  artificially restricting the characters that can be entered with
  overriding the default Gtk+ methods.
