  TWEAK / INSET / OUTSET TOOLS:  Break paths / dissappearing paths

Status in Inkscape:
Status in inkscape package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Summary:  Various tools including but not limited to the "Tweak Tool",
  "Inset / Outset Tool", and "Pattern Along Path" will break the target
  paths dramatically.  In some cases this results in entire closed areas
  being deleted.  With "Pattern Along Path", strokes are often missing
  in many areas.

  Platform:  Ubuntu Linux 7.10 amd64.

  Version:  .45+devel January 5, 2008.

  Frequency:  Always (5/5 tries for manifestation.)

  Reproduction:  Create a text object of several characters.  Use the
  tweak tool to distort the object.  After a movement, some shapes
  should disappear.  Using the same text, convert to a path and apply as
  the "Pattern Along Path".  Strokes will disappear in various areas.

  Comments:  The manifestation of this bug appears to be related in some
  way.  If not, the "Pattern Along Path" bug can be re-registered as a
  separate bug if required by the developers.
