Neither, for the moment.

I've tested your document, with both  pdfLaTeX  and XeLaTeX .
The problems you describe did not occur.
All the hyperlinks work as expected.

So we need to see more about your TeX installation.
In particular, which versions of different packages you are using.

Please post your .log  file, so we can see more about which
versions of packages you have, and where the problem occurs.
Post also the .lot  file ---- my mistake, saying .toc  previously.

You use  natbib.sty , but which version?
Have you tried using  hypernat.sty  ?
This solved many of the conflicts that arose when combining
hyperlinks with citations. But later versions of  hyperref
and/or  natbib  seem to have resolved those issues.
(In particular  \cite  is now robust.)

In my case, I'm using:

This is XeTeXk, Version 3.1415926-2.2-0.999.7 (Web2C 7.5.6)

Package typearea, 2006/07/30 v2.95b KOMA-Script package (type area)

    -- version:   [2007/02/05 8.0 (PWD)]

Hope this helps,
