+      (zlib-decompress-region (point) (point-max) t))))))

The allow-partial flag means to delete rather than simply leave the
(uncompressed) data in place.

So I guess that is a hint, we could just go back to the Emacs-26
behavior. I don't think we should, but in practice it should work

The bug in librsvg was introduced between 2.40.1 and 2.40.13, and has
been fixed again since. 2.40.13 does:

    if (g_buffered_input_stream_fill (G_BUFFERED_INPUT_STREAM
(stream), 2, cancellable, error) != 2) {
        g_object_unref (stream);
        return FALSE;

Which returns without an error filled in if stream doesn't contain at
least two bytes.
