Obviously no test-suite update for more than a year (or two?) ;o)
And it is still indicated as an incomplete beta release 
http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Test/20070907/
and several more test are obviously still waiting to be added:

Well, then at least this seems to be reproducible ;o)

Maybe the same reason, why this was wrong in my tests too - 
paragraph in SMIL recommendations not known/found, assumed, 
that the simple duration has to be devided in two fractions of the same 
length, because this is what happens for most other animation types 
(values-animation, from-to-animation, from-by-animation, but not for
set) - one indication more, that to-animations are completely different
from those animation types, which are equivalent to values-animations.

But finally the author 'CL' and the reviewer 'AE' of animate-elem-227-t.svg
should know the reason. Maybe we will get a response from them? ...

I think, there are maybe one or two more in the 1.1 test suite with similar
assumptions, but this behaviour is not the target of the test ;o)
