Using scale breaks URL

I know URL is not supported yet. But it's pretty useful already. :)

A note that if you use the scale command, the link in the image map doesn't move. For example, if you render this UML:

scale 200 height

actor "Employee" as EMP

[Tomcat] as APP

[Oracle] as DB



url of APP is [[]]


then the clickable area in the PNG is rendered a little above where the Oracle box is.

What sort of diagram is this? I tried it and plantuml said "Syntax error?" after:
actor "Employee" as EMP
