Ionic is preventing svg from rendering in chrome - any workarounds?

I have a game developed using d3.js and the svg renderer, but in certain browsers it will not render the svg when ionic is running.

Safari - OK
Firefox - OK
Chrome latest is broken (Version 40.0.2214.115 (64-bit)
mobile chrome - broken
Previously canary (chrome dev) was OK but seems broken now

Does anyone have suggestions how to work around this, or seen similar issues?

The game is here, and the start button should insert svg, but ionic prevents this.

If i rebuild the app without ionic the game will run fine.
