Thank you for the report. This is difficult for me to test because I don't have a copy of Illustrator. Which version of illustrator is it that you have?

Easy workaround:
1. Export a glyph to SVG
2. Open the SVG in Illustrator
3. Paste into the SVG, delete old and save
4. Import SVG into BirdFont

I have found out that older versions of Adobe product don't use the SVG format for the clipboard. Carls contribution is the only way around that problem.

Hi. I believe this has been fixed in later versions of Illustrator.
