tspan -- adobe and ibm viewers have bugs?

Take a look at the two simple SVG files below.
The first doesn't use <tspan> but the second does.
Both files ought to produce identical results.

But in the Adobe viewer, if you flip from one file to the
next you can see that the text shifts many pixels to the
left when you use <tspan>.

In order to confirm that this is a bug in the Adobe viewer
I decided to test these files using the IBM viewer. However
IBM completely ignores text-anchor when you use <tspan>.

Can someone confirm that the bug is in the viewers and not
in the SVG files below?
