How can you export an Inkscape SVG file to a PDF and maintain the integrity of the image?

I've been having a devil of a time getting Inkscape to export PDFs cleanly and there don't seem to be very many answers out there on all the various wikis and tutorials. In particular, transparencies are a bit of a crap-shoot - sometimes the transparency will disappear and sometimes it'll be made into a solid block.I've tried fiddling with the save-as-PDF settings in Inkscape and I've tried printing to a PDF using CutePDF with less than satisfactory results. Is there some method of exporting my file - or some method of *creating* my file - that I can use to get predictable results?
