How can I preserve border width when scaling an object with Inkscape?

I want the borders to stay fixed in Inkscape when I’m resizing an object. I found these buttons in Inkscape v0.48.3.1, but they don’t seem to work. Is there any other settings that I should turn on?

These are the buttons that should control that:

The answer below should be valid, but for some reason this doesn’t work for me as I mentioned in the question already. It’s probably a bug or there’s some additional settings which prevent the normal behavior.


I’ve tried under Windows with your version and with the most recent one and it works as usual.

In order to maintain the border stroke while scaling the object, the first button should be up (in your screenshot seems to be down, i.e. the stroke is scaled with the object):
