As ~suv points out, I should have said with/without Ctrl key. The
problem is that the modes are swapped.

In v0.47 it was the entire path.

In 0.47, the shape of the path between the selected nodes is frozen when
the Alt key is released. This isn't the perfect solution as the nodes
will still move a bit (with the shape fixed) as the pen is lifted.
Perhaps releasing the Alt key should also disable moving the nodes until
the pen is returned to the tablet (or the mouse button released and
