ocal_incoming/milimetered_paper_01.svg gives a similar error.
Looks like a few others (OCAP_logotypes_boxes.svg) have the issue too. 

I traced the error down; apparently XML::Twig can die when you call the
simplify() routine, which is where the die happens.  I don't know why
it's failing, but I was able to trap the die so it goes on after
encountering the problem.  

It may take some additional time to get this completely sorted out.
I'll ensure svg_validates skips these bad files; perhaps you can look
into why they're failing, in the meantime?
