test case of svg file importing

To reproduce this problem: 
0. Start LibreOffice
1. File->Open, select file vochito.svg

Actually: color gradients are grey 

Reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.5.0 on Fedora 64 bit

Confirmed with:
Build ID: own W7 debug build
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit

A lots of problems with color gradients (headlights, engine cover, wheels, backlights etc.).
Comment 2 Alexandr 2014-07-19 12:49:54 UTC
Reproducible with LibreOffice 4.2.5 and 4.3.0 on Debian x86_64.
Comment 3 V Stuart Foote 2015-01-10 19:37:23 UTC
On Windows 7 sp1, 64-bit en-US
Build ID: a3603970151a6ae2596acd62b70112f4d376b990
Locale: en_US

The SVG Insert -> Image filter renders this correctly.
The SVG fileOpen filter (Draw) does not.

reduced document

In the reduced document the radialGradient contains a xlink:href= to #linearGradient4134" which is a linearGradient.
The problem is that the linearGradient is defined in the document after the radialGradient in the document so it fails to find it at as the linearGradient hasn't been parsed yet
