Check out http://validator-test.w3.org/check - it reports 120 errors:

1. Line 74, Column 21: duplicate definition of attribute "xml:space".

                <mpath xlink:href="#datapath" />

2. Line 77, Column 53: content model is ambiguous: when no tokens have
   been matched, both the 1st and 2nd occurrences of "animate" are

        <rect x="-4" y="-10" width="8" height="20" fill="pink"

After that error 3 up to 121 are the same as the second error.  That
could be a double fault, the old validator shouldn't stay into what's
apparently a dead loop, and the new validator could also give up
earlier (120 is apparently a hardwired limit).  Something with the
DTD might be really broken.  With...


...I get the same effect, it's no issue in the validator's SGML lib.
