SVG gradients that rely on `gradient-transform` don’t import well yet. Other gradients, including most gradients created in AI, should import just fine already.

I found a workaround.
1. Select the shape with the errant gradient.
2. Select the color fill in the properties panel. It should appear as a "gradient" even though one doesn't render in your object.
3. Change the gradient type to one of the other gradient types (i.e change from linear gradient to radial gradient). The gradient appears in the shape but is the wrong type.
4. Change the gradient type BACK to what it should be. The gradient now renders correctly.
