Description carl 2009-09-23 20:00:31 UTC
/home/carl/dev/py/vid/djcon/djc09b.svg has
       xlink:href="djc09_logo.png" />

I move both files to ~/vid, cd ~/vid, rsvg djc09b.svg djc09b.png = images are included.

cd ~, rsvg ~/vid/djc09b.svg djc09b.png = images are not included. (bad)

move the svg somewhere else, cd to dir with image, it includes the image
cd vid; mv djc09b.svg ~; rsvg ~/djc09b.svg djc09b.png 
personally, I would consider this bad.

Which viewer do you use? rsvg-view?
Comment 2 carl 2010-04-11 13:40:40 UTC
I don't quite understand, but maybe inkscape is the answer.  that is what I used to edit the .svg.

To view the .png in my example I am using the linux display command.

This bug is causing me a problem adding title slides to videos, I use melt to render .svg into 3 seconds of video.  

you can see an example at
The 3 company logo's are the images that came up missing.

I am sorry, I misread your comment. You actually described that you used rsvg command. But I cannot reproduce the issue with librsvg-2.26.0.
