So when playing with this example:
you can see that the touch events attached to the element (yellow rectangle) work perfectly fine, but the same events attached to an SVG element (red circle) don't work at all.
It works fine on:
Opera (touch device)
It won't work on Sony touchpad, with either Chrome 36.0.1985.128 or Chrome Beta 37.0.2062.39
does anyone know why, or know some sort of work-around for this issue?
This was supposedly patched in Chromium at revision 171207:
Update touch-action hit-testing to match latest spec changes. touch-action now applies to all elements with both width AND height properties.
Also fix application to SVG elements.

You might want to raise a bug on the chromium tracker if you have found a regression.
