Bug Description

I'm using 0.48.2 r9819 on a mac.

I was making a diagram and I've noticed that two independent connections are being altered when the other is moved.
The attached file shows a detailed example, I hope this to be reproductible.

Connectors cannot have manual edits (the one in question has) - the rerouting is to be expected when a recalculation of the connector layout is triggered.

(Tip: if you want to draw connectors with custom routes, use the pen tool and draw regular paths).

Thanks, but that does not really solve the problem.
I was trying to have a line attached permanently to an object, so when I move this object I dont need to move the line again.

It's a behavior that exists in diagramming aplications, and I know the rerouting its expected, but thats not what happens.
Please see images 1 and 2 in the attached zip file.
Thank you.
