Could this be related to bug 27478? note that it's not the plugin failing to
print itself (as in 27478) but rather mozilla failing to print the stuff it's
displaying instead of the plugin.

Andreas, thanks for providing the testcase.
Reporter: Is this still the case in a current build?
In mozilla build 2001050515 the behaviour is slightly different. The graphic is neither printed nor displayed on screen. Perhaps someone else could verify the behaviour with a different use case.
When I try the testcase with my 2001-06-10-08-trunk build (build with
--enable-svg) on Solaris 7 I'll get:

Looks the build is somehow not able to recognize the image as SVG and does not
use the fallback image instead... ;-(

I can't reproduce the symptoms using the current release  nor a nightly build  on Windows Vista SP2 (successor of NT).
As this seems fixed but no related commits are known, I'd suggest this issue to be marked resolved "works for me".
Andreas: even though Gecko (Communication, Firefox and friends) now supports SVG, the test case was still valid: the SVG content was broken (there was a hanging </text> tag with no matching one opening it; also, no "xmlns" was provided, causing the file to be rendered as XML). As the object source was broken, the GIF image was still being loaded, allowing to quickly check for this issue. ;-)

Oops, guess I didn't mention anything about my testing procedure:
1. Open the testcase;
2. Visually analyze the output of "File" menu, "Print Preview" option.
I've also double checked using a PDF printer (actually simulating the print output).
Sorry for the bug spam!
