Draw file with embedded Calc spreadsheet that exhibits problem when exporting to SVG

I have a simple Calc spreadsheet embedded in Draw. When I export to SVG the outline of the spreadsheet is shown but not the cell content (text). This seems to be a bug as confirmed by

Reproduced with LO,,, -> no text (only border)

Exporting from LO, : failed to load by Image Viewer, but Chrome & Firefox can open that (little glitch in some border).

Exporting from LO : failed to load by Image Viewer, Chrome shows nothing, Firefox only shows slight border.

Exporting from AOO 3.4.1, 4.1.0 : correctly opened in Image Viewer, Chrome, Firefox.

Tested on Ubuntu 12.04 32bit

I see nothing in browser Seamonkey on Windows 7. The reason for seeing nothing is the use of clip-path.

The text is missing because the text has no explicit x= attribute. The default x="0" is out of the viewing box.

Besides that:
Attributes x and y are not valid in tspan, although browsers might interpret them.
Without an explicit x attribute for each cell content, the cell contents will be rendered one after the other without space.
The element tspan is only allowed as child of element text, element textArea, or element tspan, but not of element g. But browsers are fault-tolerant and will render such anyway.

The text stopped appearing across the following set of commits (the intermediate commits have a compile error)

Adding Cc: to mrcekets@gmail.com; Could you possibly take a look at this one? Thanks

(* This is the same set of commits as bug 90284, but it's not certain that the fix for one bug is the fix for the other, so not merging the two for now)
