If you like me to try something else, please let me know.

btw, there is new version of dvisvgm by Martin Gieseking just
annouced. Current version we are using on TL 2015 is 1.9.2,
but the new versio is 1.14  2015-12-28. But TL will not
update to new one until TL 2016. So it needs to be manually
build for TL 2015 if we to use it now. Binaries only for
windows and mac. I might have some bug fixes also.
