MWE that loses some links and keeps others

I use Inkscape v.0.91 to convert a .svg file into pdf. To do this conversion,
my Inkscape relies on libcairo v.1.14.03 and libcairomm v.1.01.

The SVG file contains some hyperlinks, both to web pages and mailto: type

Some of these are missing in the exported PDF. 

I believe that links are not set if the anchor text does not have the same
format as the link target: an anchor linking to a webpage has to be of the form
"http://some.text.tld", an e-mail anchor has to be of the form
"name at domain.tld".

The attached SVG file is a MWE where some of the links are dropped.

Note: Inkscape uses both libcairo and libcairomm. I do not know exactly which
of the two cause this behaviour.

Note 2: Also, please forgive me if this has already been fixed in newer
versions:) I am aware that I use old versions of the libraries, but searching
the closed bug reports does not show anything similar to my issue, so I
reported anyway.
