Chuck, what specific version of FM 9, as shown in Help >> About, the full number(s) shown.
I'm using 9.0p255. I checked for Updates and there are none so, this must be latest and greatest!

Ah, well, there goes that theory
I'm not a structured FM user so I'm just offering basic troubleshooting mumbles, I'm afraid, in hopes that somebody else will come along to duplicate your steps, but you mentioned:
>> Examine the XML file that corresponds to the Chapter with the SVG. It is only partially created.
Can you determine any specific features of the point where the XML stops that might give you a possible clue, e.g. does it stop at a pathname? does the path or the filename use any unusual characters or spaces? have you tested with a local file rather than from a network location?
It stops while writing out the left sibling element to the Figure element. Every once in a while it will write our the start of the Figure element (i.e. "<Figure ") but I haven't been able to identify the conditions that set that up. No special characters are in play. I creates some really simple xDocBook files with a PARA "This is a paragraph" followed by a FIGURE with a GRAPHIC reference to a real simple SVG drawing of an elipse created in InkScape.
