End shape tool with tool switch

Bug #171500 reported by Mgsloan-users on 2006-09-09
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Currently if you create a few curves/lines with the
shape tool and switch tools before hitting enter or
completing the path it will just go away.

I'm not sure where I picked up this habit, however in
some drawing tool or another this was my main method
for ending curves.

A more reasonable behavior would be to do the same
thing pressing the enter key does.

I'm assigning it to myself, because I'm the one who
cares and I can code. Posting it here for discussion
or if i give up and forget about it.

From the release notes for 0.44 (released 2006-06-23):
«The unfinished path in Pen tool is now cancelled, not finalized, when you switch away from the Pen tool. Apart from being more intuitively correct, this also fixes a crash when you quit Inkscape with the unfinished path in Pen tool. »
