Thanks.  I suspect it was related to that.

Yah, that phrasing can be especially troubling when evaluating cases such as...
	repeating-radial-gradient(red -25px, blue -20px, green -15px);
... where there are no "non-negative locations" prior to .

Heck, even in non-repeating gradients it's a concern:
	radial-gradient(red -25px, blue -20px, green -15px);

http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-images/#radial-color-stops (4.2.2, Placing Color Stops) says:
  # Negative locations can be specified; though negative locations
  # are never directly consulted for rendering, they can affect the
  # color of non-negative locations on the gradient ray through
  # interpolation. For example, β€˜radial-gradient(red -50px, yellow
  # 100px)’ produces an elliptical gradient that starts with a
  # reddish-orange color in the center (specifically, #f50) and
  # transitions to yellow.
