The page has a background color, which was hidden with both Safari (including
Webkit) and Opera, but not with Firefox 3. I put a background on the object
itself to fix.

To demonstrate, I added the two SVG elements as objects, removed any background
color and the following snapshot shows what the page looks like in Webkit:

<a href="http://skitch.com/shelleyp/jxta/burningbird"><img
alt="Burningbird" /></a>

However, same page with Firefox:

<a href="http://skitch.com/shelleyp/jx1d/burningbird"><img
alt="Burningbird" /></a>

What's interesting, though, is that I used wget to create a <a
href="http://burningbird.net/svgerror/burningbird.net">snapshot of the page</a>
to preserve the bug, but Safari/Webkit now picks up the background color. The
only difference? One site is dynamic, the other is a static web page. 

I'll leave the front page up for a time so you can see the bug, but I can't
preserve the web page indefinitely. Hopefully the images will be enough to show
how to recreate the bug.
