Been there, done that. Britta finally solved my issue. Inkscape has a crappy driver (?) and will not probably recognize/differentiate between the two types (raster and vector). so you will have to print the pdf separately as far as i know. 

Maybe someone else actually solved this?

It seemed related to the fact that I was using 100 DPI, but the fourth table here (http://www.epiloglaser.com/tl-line-weights.htm) says it should have worked. I ended up doing it as two separate jobs: one raster at 100 DPI and one vector as 500 DPI. Anyone else had better luck with combined jobs?
