Yes I am having the similar problem. I think this is due to the fact 
that the SVG image is treated as a seperate
document. The kaXmlIcon is basically an image so it wouldn't have the 
same problem.

I am currently using Firefox and it already has built-in SVG support :) 
An Adobe plugin (for example) is required for IE
and that also requires further modification to the SVG document. I have 
yet to test it out on more browsers.

Seems like we have plenty of updates recently. I should do a CVS update
