Bug Description

Dragging between two nodes does curve adjustment, but dragging between the end node and nothing (i.e. dragging the cap) causes a crash.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create an unclosed path
2. Set the cap to rounded or square
3. Set the stroke size up or zoom in (for the next step)
4. Click on the path, past the end node, on the cap, and drag
5. Observe the crash

Ubuntu 10.04, Inkscape 0.47+devel-r9474 (own build).

Easier way to reproduce:

1.Open attachment with latest inkscape build
2.Select the black line
3.Activate the node tool
4.Drag the mouse in the red circle part (you don't have to select anything)

Improved patch that also fixes artifacts (without crash) when dragging near the start node.
