Bug Description

Binary package hint: inkscape

Most of the issues with connectors inside groups described in bug #168360 were fixed in version 0.47.0. However, a subtle problem remains.

To reproduce:

* Create a new inkscape document
* Draw two simple shapes
* Select the diagram connectors tool and join the two shapes
* Group the shapes and the connector
* Move the entire group
* Enter the group
* Select the diagram connectors tool and edit the connector line
 > The connector immediately returns to its original position (i.e. the position before the group was moved)

The issue is a bit different with bzr rev. 9286. There's no preview line problem, but the connector is moved back to its original place as soon as I edit it on the moved group.
