ps and eps export with cairo in inkscape no usable with psfrag

In current svn inkscape versions (0.47 and later), pdf and ps/eps export is handled by cairo.
The problem is that cairo sometimes will export text as paths and sometimes with embeded fonts?!
Since the text is not exported as a whole plain text to ps/eps by cairo, psfrag in LaTeX is not capable of finding the to replaced text.
This makes inkscape and its eps export function for using with psfrag in LaTeX useless.
Older versions (like 0.46) of inkscape are working fine, with minor other/different problems in the ps/eps export.
Question to the developers: Is where a way of getting this resolved, for example with a question in the save dialog?
(So, that text is saved as whole without any fonts, since this text is replaced anyway.)
Or is there a special way inside cairo, which could solve this problem?
