[BioC] svg error in arrayQualityMetrics

I am running the arrayQualityMetrics with:


and get the following errror:

Error in tmp[i] : invalid subscript type 'list'

The error is generated in a 'brittle' part of the arrayQualityMetrics code on line 31 of the annotateSvgMapPlot.R source file, in the function annotateSvgPlot().
Line 31 of this file is prepended with a comment pointing to the 'brittle' nature of this part of the code and says 

'...getPlotObjNodes' will be 'getMatplotSeries' or 'getPlotPoints' from
    ## 'SVGAnnotation', which rely on conventions used by libcairo ...

I replaced getPlotObjNodes in annotateSvgPlot() with getMatplotSeries() and getPlotPoints() to no avail.
