No the main reason is that inkscape smoothing is less "accurate", It allows a 
far more greater distance between the "mouse" stroke and the actual stroke, 
which is not a problem for a vector graphics application, but I felt it would 
be a problem for a pixel application. I think a quick a fix for the artefact 
I described would be to simply not smooth when the angle between two strokes 
is too important, or have smoothing proportional to the angle.
