No, it's not your fault -- this is due to a limitation of Webkit. It doesn't handle all PDF link/destination types. The fact that they work in Acrobat is your confirmation that you're doing things right.

It's possible that using the xdvipdfmx driver instead of xdv2pdf would write the links in a different form and thereby work around the issue, but I'm not sure this works in every case.
