Bug Description

Follow-up report to:
Bug #171793 “add "group" to right-click menu when >2 objs selected”
https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/171793

The feature request to add the command 'Group' to the canvas context menu (bug #171793) was filed at a time when the current stable release (Inkscape 0.45) did not allow to group a single object. This restriction was removed later on:
https://sourceforge.net/p/inkscape/mailman/message/16113833/
See also this mention in the release notes of Inkscape 0.46:
«In previous versions, Inkscape didn't allow you to group a single object. Yet in some cases, this operation is useful (for example, to blur the clipped edged of an object, or apply more than one clippath/mask to an object). Now this limitation is removed; just select any single object and group it to get a single-object group.»
http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/Release_notes/0.46#Other_changes_and_improvements

The attached patch removes the restriction of more than one object in the selection to enable the 'Group' command in the canvas context menu, to restore consistency with the other 'Group' commands (menu item, toolbar button and keyboard shortcut - they all can be applied to a single selected object).
