Hmm. The release notes for 2.11 say:
"New SVG2 renderer. By default, OpenLayers still uses the SVG renderer,
but the new one has several advantages:"
I assumed from that, that OL was moving to SVG2. If rendering works on
OL with SVG2 and Canvas but not with SVG, then it sounds like I should
indeed log the bug.

Thanks for that. Are there browser differences to worry about as well?
