[cairo] svg2pdf -- problem with <text>

This is my first posting to the list. Last week I installed Cairo
and all its prerequisites on my Mac G4 running Mac OS 10.4.11,
followed by svg2pdf. I am using a Perl script to create movie frames
in SVG that are immediately converted to PDF files using svg2pdf in
the script. The image sequence is then opened as a QuickTime movie.
Everything has been going pretty smoothly until just now when I
decided to add text to the SVG code. The tags <text ...></text> with
no content cause no problem but as soon as I put any text between the
tags the script runs very slowly. The PDF files are created but have
zero content and I get no error returned from svg2pdf.
Can anyone suggest what might be the problem here?
