Yes, I have similar results.
And also:
an animated SVG which works fine in IE
doesn't refresh correcly in Mozilla and RealOne.
In all these cases, it's the SVG plug-in which displays the SVG, but the 
result is different. I think the dialogue between the plug-in and the 
application differs from one to another.
