[BUG] Some text rendered poorly
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG REPORT

Description

What is the problem?

The text in https://tools.wmflabs.org/svgtranslate-test/File:2014_Ebola_Outbreak_Monthly_Cases_per_day.svg renders very poorly.

Some of the characters in the same word/sentence overlap one another.

This appears to be a bug in librsvg, because other software that use librsvg (e.g. GIMP) also render this SVG poorly.

Use of librsvg more broadly has been/is being discussed in other places (e.g. T40010).

Steps to reproduce problem
  1. Visit https://tools.wmflabs.org/svgtranslate-test/File:2014_Ebola_Outbreak_Monthly_Cases_per_day.svg

Cannot repro anymore. The image on SVG Translate looks identical to Commons (though there is still some overlapping text). Please reopen if I'm wrong!
