So, this is not how IE9 resolves it so it's a bug in their code.
I tried to submit this through their feedback program but it's not working for me.

Do you know where I can submit this?

Well if you have /1/example.html which refers to /2/example.svg and in /2/example.svg you have a relative reference like "example.png" then that is resolved independently of the address of the HTML document, so unless there are other things to consider, like xml:base attributes, that resolves to /2/example.png.
