Thanks Rob, that would of course work!
I'm not so happy about the solution, because I don't really see, why the order of the objects should affect the wrapping (is that really so in Inkscape?), but I accept that it might be just the way it works.
I'm not so happy because the reason why I'm testing it, is that I will want to teach it to other people and they will ask me, why it is so complicated.

That is useful if you e.g. have light shades of grey in an image image that you want the text to be on top of (e.g. a slight shadow), but also a object that you want it to flow around. Whenever I put the Text in front of an image (regardless of it having wrapping set or not) it doesn't wrap.
