Sometimes SVG markers which contained centered text labels looks in QGIS a little differ than in another software like browsers or vector graphic editors. In such cases label is moving to left side of marker. For example: [http://gis-lab.info/images/screenshots/20101104-e59-50kb.jpg] Example of svg marker in attachment.

Unfortunately this is how Qt loads that SVG, so it's not actually QGIS problem - if you open SVG Viewer example from "qtdemo" application, it will display the SVG in the same way as QGIS does. Please file a bug in Qt for this issue.

As a workaround consider transforming that text to a path in a vector editor...
