Bug Description

1. Draw a path or a shape on the page
(to have something to snap to).
2. turn on a snapping mode (like path snapping)
3. pick the bezier curves tool
4. place the first node on the page,
move the cursor to check that it snaps to
the previously drawn object.
5. press Esc
6. move the cursor near the object,
the snap message doesn't get displayed anymore.

To display the snap messages again,
perform either of these two actions,

Pick the bezier curves tool again,
click once on the page to set a new node,

Snapping seams to be calculated in the background,
because if one clicks near the object,
then the node snaps to it.

Tested with:
r12848 on linux mint 15 cinnamon 32bit

Pressing the shortcut: ctrl + z
has the same effect as pressing Esc,
while drawing a bezier path.

Tested with v0.48.4 r9939 and r12976.
