Linking from SVG to XML (URI/Anchor elements problem #)

In a SVG I have links leading to several different xml files. In some cases,
I include a URI/Anchor element and when I click that link I expect to be
"scrolled down" to the place in the XML file where I have the specific
anchor element/id.
This works without problems while working on a web server. It does, however,
not work when I run the SVG file locally on my computer  (C:/SVG/test.svg). 
Link in SVG file: <a xlink:href="test.xml#testing">
Destination in XML file: <rubrik id="testing">Heading </rubrik>
When I click the link locally, I am forwarded to the xml-file, only not
"scrolled down". When I look at the path, the "#testing" part is not
included. So, it appears that part is automatically stripped for some
reason. Any idea on how to solve this problem?
