I don't know what to do to fix it, but I can confirm it.
Some people when working with Inkscape, or possibly other SVG
authoring programs turn off the bounding box display. It makes drawing
seem less restricted (for me at least), but if the artist doesn't turn
on the box and make sure their picture is a reasonable size in
relation to the box, you can end up with a tiny picture up in the
corner, or with a zommed in view, or none at all.
