SVG embedded in FO cannot handle large (6digit) translates

The warnings about the fonts on the Mac turn out to be sth Mac-specific
(happens with a number of FOs containing embedded SVG), so I guess this remark
can be ignored WRT to this bug...
Being quite intrigued by this, I decided to do a little reading in the PDF
spec, and found this little note (4.2.3 Graphics - Coordinate Systems -
Transformation Matrices) :
When rendering graphics objects, it is sometimes necessary for a viewer
application to perform the inverse of a transformation -—that is, to ﬁnd the
user space coordinates that correspond to a given pair of device space
coordinates. Not all transformations are invertible, however. For example, if a
matrix contains a, b, c, and d elements that are all zero, all user coordinates
map to the same device coordinates and there is no unique inverse
transformation. Such noninvertible transformations are not very useful and
generally arise from unintended operations, such as scaling by 0. Use of a
noninvertible matrix when painting graphics objects can result in unpredictable
Wonder if this has got sth to do with it... Just an idea... We'll keep looking.
