As Bulia explained, the tweak tool ends up distorting the path, and in a
path with few nodes the closer nodes' curvatures will be affected more
readily than one with more nodes. However, no matter the size of the
object or the amount of nodes, there will be some distortion to the
Bulia's solution (to use node sculpting with the node tool) may be more
along the lines of what you're looking for, but it operates much
differently. You'll have to try it to see if it will work for you.
