Bug Description

Prepare a file or use attached one:

3. Create text "Original" and place besides the original rectangle
4. Create text "Clone" and place besides the cloned rectangle

Reproduce the bug:
5. Select the "Clone" text and the cloned rectangle. Nothing else

7. Paste from clipboard

AFAICT the same underlying issue as already tracked in

Proposing to link as duplicate to bug #167907.

I'd prefer not to link as an exact duplicate, because it does not only affect the SVG data (image/svg+xml) in the clipboard but also affects the PNG data in the clipboard. At least the PNG data could have a different (easier) fix than the SVG data.

Can still reproduce with Inkscape 0.92.4 on openSUSE TW 20190310. Only 'clone' text is displayed when pasting to LibreOffice Writer or Pinta.
