I'm sure this makes sense and, although I haven't tried to reproduce, Batik
recently (see revision 701300 ( https://svn.apache.org/viewcvs.cgi?view=rev&rev=701300
) for example) had a few improvements which may
help (compatibility with 1.6R7). Unfortunately, I'm fairly convinced they don't
address this specific issue...

If you are aware of this workaround, why not sharing the solution proposal?
Patches are always welcome... ;-)

Also, I've decrease importance ("critical" was just too much, specially
considering a workaround [1] was already proposed).

Hope this helps,
