Where is the current text position within a text element when a textPath finishes?

Hi,

https://bug593601.bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=472232

seems to give different results in different browsers. My question is where
should the M be displayed ?

Is it

a) near the foo
b) just off the top of the page

Batik 1.7 and Opera 10.6 Mac go for a)
Opera 10.5 Mac, Opera 10.6 Windows, the adobe SVG plug in for IE and Firefox
go for b)

The Opera results are particularly strange:

In the b) case Firefox at least keeps an untransformed position which is
modified by the advances of the text and that's where the next text goes. I
imagine that for a) the implementation is keeping the textPath transformed
text position.

Best regards

Robert
