I just tested the latest version of Inkscape a= nd the nodes appear
correct if you draw an ellipse directly with the Ell= ipse tool and then
convert the ellipse to a path.

How did you dra= w your ellipse? My guess is that you drew a circle,
rotated it, and then squeezed it. This is the only way t= hat I can think
of to get the nodes at other than 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'cloc= k. Rotating the
circle will rotate the ellipse handles to a different or= ientation.
