Pattern along Path renders differently on circle / circular path

Bug Description

Tested with 0.92pre2.

(wanted to check if a freeze with mounting memory usage I got in 0.91 persists. The memory leak is gone, fortunately, but I found a different problem.)

The LPE Pattern along Path renders differently in 0.92pre2 than in 0.91 for circles.
It looks broken in 0.92pre2, see attached screenshots and file (zipped).

Testing with archived builds (on OS X 10.7.5):
- not reproduced with lp:inkscape rev <= 14224,
- crash on load with lp:inkscape 14228 <= rev < 14299,
- reproduced with lp:inkscape rev >= 14299

Revisions 14226, 14299 had been major 2geom updates.

Replaces (hidden) comment 2 to correct rev numbers of 2geom updates.

PaP LPE on paths with end nodes which have the handles retracted (cusp nodes without handle in the node editor) has further deteriorated with this fix (at least in 0.92.x with r15208) - it's basically unusable (due to the randomness of incorrect output which can appear or disappear even by nudging a node or handle minimally) without extracting at least a minimal handle for both start and end nodes.
