   The SVG document has an error according to the SVG 
specification.

   The problem element is the use element at line 962. 

   That element has a negative number for it's 'width' 
attribute, see:
        http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/struct.html#SVGElementWidthAttribute

   The error message is a little misleading due to this 
part of the SVG spec:
        http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/struct.html#UseElement

   See the paragraph under the bullet for:
        If the 'use' element references a 'symbol' element.

   The element is a little weird since it has a negative
width and height as well as a transform that has negative
scale factors.
