You're right, in a way Stefan.  I didn't edit out the symbols enough to 
remove extra black portions.  I think those may be the white areas of 
symbols that get converted to black somehow.   They can be deleted easy 
enough in Inkscape but the person editing needs to know enough to do so.

Apparently, the extraction of the SVG from the PDF didn't handle the 
white areas correctly.
