From Gimp to Inkscape and Back

Here is a screenshot of the effect of 'union' in Inkscape, AFTER the path has been broken apart: the interior boundaries have disappered. 
If it hasn't been broken apart, 'union' is redundant, as Gimp exports text to a single path ... unless you wish to apply the union to some texts exported piecewise. That should work alright, provided no breaking apart has been done... Only, you can get displacement on importing to Gimp.
   
Capture made under the 'node' tool, to show the actual paths--enlarge to view their individual bounding-boxes in the 'before' example; Inkscape 0.92 under Windows7.

Note: Once the text has been converted to path, one is dealing with the behaviour of paths--point. I cannot see how the actual font from which the path was derived can matter.
