Example SVG image: Inkscape on the left, Karbon on the right.
Version: 2.1 (using KDE 4.5.5)
I was doing a review of the oxygen icon set and discovered that many of the icons have rendering issues in Karbon.
In the Kate icon, the text does not wrap properly, and there's a weird ink blot looking thing on the page. In an alternate icon for Akregator, it appears that pieces of objects are supposed to be cut off, but aren't. I both cases, there appear to be issues with layering. (See attached screen shots of inkscape vs karbon.)
Reproducible: Didn't try

Actual SVG image to use as a test case.
Also, I should note that I'm actually using the latest Karbon -- 2.3.1. I only put 2.1 because it was the latest in he dropdown list.
Seems that there are various clip paths in akregator.svgz, which are not yet support by karbon.

added support for parsing and rendering character offsets
character offsets provide a way to position individual character
of a svg text shape other than by using the font specified advance
values. offsets can be specified as absolute offsets to the current
coordinate system or as relative offsets to the last character
