I'll figure out some other time why linking from the button (object element) doesn't work.

I tryed in different ways to do that too but the only thing that works
is creating the link in the svg[1] file itself. See this example:

It looks like you're right.

Thank you W3C, for this shipment of fail. :(

I don't know. Now I think that trying to link an SVG object is like
trying to link an embeded HTML object. Since both documents can have
links inside, maybe it is not necesary to create the link from the
parent document.

I can see why being able to wrap a generic object in a link is maybe not a great idea (e.g. it doesn't make sense for Java applets). But it's such a shame that SVG images can't be treated like normal images. Only being able to link from within SVG partially breaks hotlinking and being able to reuse the same image for different URLs.

I can't imagine that W3C haven't considered this, so maybe it's by design. Anyway, now I know that I either have to use the PNG image or use my own copy of the SVG image.
