We have some legacy SVG files... many of them work wonderfully and scale beautifully with IE 7 and Firefox 3, but some files tend to “explode” -- requiring a refresh of the browser that *sometimes* fixes the problem.

I think it is a memory issue -- certainly not an issue with Flash (except for the nagging Z-order issue where Flash overrides scripted pop-ups in dominance, unlike SVG).

I made magic once.  Now, the sofa is gone.
