Bug Description

It seems that a value of dy with length and unit identifier fail.
This cause the calculated y-position to be wrong (near to zero)
When i open the xml-view panel in inkscape then the shown value of dy is near to zero.
If I change the value to a length with NO unit identifier it seem to work ok.
see the supplied examples.

Issue is present in Inkscape 0.91 r13725 (Feb 19 2015) although the wiki release notes for .91 shows:

Text tool
Text size default unit is now points (pt) and is customizable (px,pt,pc,mm,cm,in,em)
Text toolbar shows full list of font style variants for that font
Files with text in em units read correctly
Font substitution warning dialog

The SVG Test for this unit would be:

And the implementation Test Coverage page shows Inkscape .48.1 passed...
