Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create four objects as follows. For convenience of visibility, I put them roughly in a column.
1a. Create a path with F6 freehand tool
1b. Create a path with Shift+F6 bezier tool
1c. Create a rectangle object with F4 tool
1d. Create an ellipse object with F5 tool
2. Choose selection tool (F1)
3. Select any one of the four objects
4. Create Clone (Alt+D)
5. Move the clone to the right, for visibility
6. Copy any one of the four objects to the clipboard
7. Select the clone
8. Choose menu Edit > Clone > Relink to Copied
9. Repeat steps 6-8 for all four objects

Expected behavior: the clone takes on the shape of each object, and Select Original (Shift+D) can be used to confirm the clone has a new parent
Actual behavior: as described, except for Ellipse object. This one cannot become the clone's parent, even if it was originally cloned from that object.

Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) version 1607 build 14393.576

Based on tests with archived builds (on OS X 10.7.5):
- not reproduced with Inkscape 0.48.5 r10040,
- not reproduced with lp:inkscape rev <= 12669,
- reproduced with lp:inkscape rev >= 12670,
- reproduced with lp:inkscape/0.92.x r15283;
the reported behavior was likely exposed with the changes in:
Revision 12670: Seamlessly switch between SVG circle, ellipse, and path (arc) elements while using the Circle, Ellipse, and Arc tool.
