Is there a DOCTYPE in the SVG, or does the SVG reference other images?
The "No ImageReader" is a kind of catch-all. It seems the SVG reader
gets an error during parsing the SVG or while determining the image
Delete any DOCTYPE (but keep the SVG and perhaps XLINK namespaces),
add an heigth and width to the top-level element, and use absolute
file path for referenced bitmaps.
