flip, rotate or scale a LPE object

Bug Description

When I flip, rotate or scale an object with a "bend path" effect, it does not act as I expect.

Just watch this youtube video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0rx__lIlkg
The Red path has a "bend path" lpe applied
The green one is the same converted into path, it acts as a reference for us. This is the result we naturally expect for the transformation of the red path.

I think bug #172137 is a specific issue of this bug.

Quick comment: I think that some of the unexpected transforms are actually expected!

Yes, indeed, in the last version I tried, scaling and flipping were working fine.
Trust me, this was a serious issue when working with LPE.

I can't watch the video (it's been removed) but I think I'm having the same problems. Just in case, here's how I reproduce it:

apply the bend path effect to an object
Press either h or v with the object selected and watch move across the screen!

I'm using the prerelease of 0.47 that was released a 17th June on Ubuntu 9.04

I confirm this bug is not fully corrected.
Scaling looks good, but flipping and rotating distort the shape.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Draw a rectangle.
2. Apply Bend LPE.
3. Bend the shape.
4. Select the shape with the selector.
5. Flip or rotate.

The shape is distorted after the mouse is released.
