SVG which will not import correctly
When attempting to import a floor plan in SVG format into Dia, there were several import errors:
* Each object has a box frame around it in Dia, which wasn't present in the original SVG.
* All text objects show in the top-left corner of the page.
* Several garbage objects appear in the top-left corner of the page, which do not seem to correspond to any objects in the original SVG.
Most of this could be fixed with some manual work (just had to discard the text), but it would be nicer if Dia could import SVG more faithfully.
The SVG was generated by importing a Visio 2000 .vsd file into LibreOffice Draw, then exporting it to SVG and importing it in Dia. The imported .vsd looks OK in Draw, and the resulting SVG also looks OK in Inkscape.
Dia version is dia-gnome-0.97.3, as distributed with Ubuntu MATE 16.04.
The SVG is attached.
