Ok. It seems, that I have founded the root of the problem.

The problem are user specific;)

Step to reproduce:
1. find a non working svg: http://www.sparksrocketry.com/Motorcycle.svg
    * the .svg file has no metadata!
    * the license is set to default (Propriatary)!
   Finally, this file normally cant be uploaded 
   (because of lack of metadata and license problem)
2. go to: http://www.openclipart.org/cgi-bin/upload_svg.cgi
3. Try to upload. If I fill the fields (author, title, keyword) the script 
   alert, that it cant be accepted because the license issue
    * If I check the little checkbox, that Im the author(name=publicdomain in
the html), the script accept the file! 
    But the file result is 0-byte length.

Just a remark: If I check the chekbox in the beginning, the script accept the
file without any alert (so Im not informed, that I have missed to fill out the

Another remark about the upload_svg.cgi file:
Why is it two upload button? It confuses the end-users and totally unnecessary.
"Send file now" vs. "Send file"

Proposed workaround:
1. alert the user if the metadata is not filled not matter if the checkbox is
checked or not(publicdomain)

2. Do not accept svg-s with incorrect metadata OR provided the same metadata
fileds as inkscape provided to be able fill out right now.

Hope it helps, sadly I cant investigate more time into this problem because of
my exams.
