Ah I see, I didn't know about that. Guess I should take more time to read
the information displayed in the statusbar. Problem solved, thanks for
your help!

> When I create a new Bézier curve (consisting of a single curved
> segment) in Inkscape (0.48.3.1 r9886), the first node doesn't have a
> handle. Procedure:
>
> - For the first node, click on the canvas (and release the mousebutton
> without dragging first)
> - Then click somewhere else on the canvas, drag your mouse such that a
> nice curved curve appears, and release the mousebutton
> - Press <Enter> to end the curve
>
> When using the Node Tool (F2) to check the nodes, you can see that the
> first node doesn't have a handle (or is it so small such that you
> cannot see it?)

> I know that I _can_ create a handle by clicking and dragging for the
> first node, but I also expect a handle when following the above
