"ASSERTION: Sample time should not precede current interval"
###!!! ASSERTION: Sample time should not precede current interval: 'aContainerTime >= beginTime', file content/smil/nsSMILTimedElement.cpp, line 659 ###!!! ABORT: Expecting non-negative active time: 'aActiveTime >= 0', file content/smil/nsSMILTimedElement.cpp, line 1903
Still reproduces on trunk.
This seems worth investigating. Taking for now.

I haven't quite got to the bottom of this but I think what's happening is something like: - The <set> element is attached to <svg> element 'a' which becomes its time container. Let's just call the <svg> element with ID 'a', "time container A". - The <set> element registers its startup milestone with mTime = 0. All elements do this since that's where they resolve their initial interval. - That milestone persists in time container A. - Time container A is detached from the document tree. - The <set> element is attached to the <svg> element 'b', aka time container B. Presumably at this point it also registers its startup milestone with time container B since it hasn't been sampled yet. - The document is flushed which I guess means that time container B is sampled and the <set> element gets its initial interval resolved. - Time container A is re-attached to the document tree at which point I presume it updates its parent offset (in SVGSVGElement::BindToTree which calls nsSMILTimeContainer::SetParent). Now, time container A's current time is 61ms (presumably that was the amount of time between firing onLoad and running the setTimeout callback in my debug build) so mParentOffset ends up being set to -61. Maybe it was that way before this step, I'm not sure. - Then we attach time container A as a descendant of time container B. - When we go to run the next sample we iterate through all time containers associated with the animation controller which includes both time containers A and B. - Time container A renders up its "zero" milestone from the <set> element since it has yet to run it. It converts it to container time which is -61. - That happens to be the earliest milestone so we go to sample it. - We iterate through the elements, get to the <set>, then convert the time to <set>'s container time. That is, we take the -61 and convert it to a time in the time container B's time scale. Now, we set time container B's current time to 1000 earlier on so its mParentOffset is -1000. As a result, the time gets converted to 939. - We pass 939 to <set> as the sample time (it's an "end" sample so we call SampleEndAt) and then it complains because it has a resolved interval starting at 1000 and it doesn't expect to get a sample time before its current interval begins. There might be a few details amiss here but I think that's roughly what's happening. There are probably a few points a long the way where we could fix this but perhaps the simplest is just to make timed elements ignore these bogus samples.
