SVG not rendering properly in 1.8 and 2.2

Some SVG symbols are not rendering properly in QGIS 1.8 and 2.2. They were created in Inkscape and render correctly there and in Internet Explorer and other browsers. In QGIS, there are tails added at the corner where two lines meet.

I have an enterprise application running on 1.8, so if the fix is only going to be implemented on 2.x, I would appreciate ideas for a workaround.

It renders fine on QGIS master (next 2.4).

The quality of the SVG-export should also be given highest priority. SVG maps are used very often on Wikipedia and the better QGIS performs, the more QGIS-generated pictures will be seen by thousands of people. Also important is the compatibility to Inkscape which is used for the post-processing. But the exported SVG should also render true in Adobe Illustrator.
