Powerstroke LPE still hangs

Bug Description

(Trisquel 7.0, Inkscape r15556)

As a follow-up to my previous report of hanging powerstrokes (https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1487424) here's another file which causes Inkscape to hang (by going into an infinite loop, because no error messages are printed) if reading it is attempted. Once again, one of the Bézier segments has a control point coincident with one of its endpoints.

The bug remains if I change the interpolator to CubicBezierSmooth; the SVG file from which I extracted this can be found at https://sta.sh/01xswiypahms (or at http://stjonal.deviantart.com/art/Everfree-background-660344136).

attached is a proposed patch for this bug. I will leave this here until the weekend, and if there is no adverse reaction, then I will commit it (again).

This patch is an exact duplicate of what was previously committed in rev 15003 to trunk:

This was also committed to lib2geom in github as well:

For some inexplicable reason, this patch appears to have been reverted in trunk in rev 15047.

It looks to me as though this last revert was probably unintentional.

Based on your comment, I briefly checked other changes in r15047: there seem to be a few more (unintended) reverts contained in that merge.
