Thanks for checking it. Can you test with

\pushoverloadmode \unprotect

\permanent\tolerant\protected\def\includesvgfile[#1]#*[#2]%
   {\hbox\bgroup % no \dontleavehmode
    \getdummyparameters[\c!offset=\zeropoint,#2]%
    \clf_includesvgfile{#1}\dimexpr\dummyparameter\c!offset\relax
    \egroup}

\permanent\tolerant\protected\def\includesvgbuffer[#1]#*[#2]%
   {\hbox\bgroup % no \dontleavehmode
    \getdummyparameters[\c!offset=\zeropoint,#2]%
    \clf_includesvgbuffer{#1}\dimexpr\dummyparameter\c!offset\relax
    \egroup}

\protect \popoverloadmode
