I noticed that in SVN the object/node snap behavior is different from
that in 0.45.
In 0.45 if I had a polyline then I would only get snapping to the
nodes, not to other parts of the line.
In 0.46 it is equally happy to snap to any part of the line, making it
difficult to snap to the corner vertex.
I can understand there's no particular reason to preferentially snap
to a smooth node on a path, but for corner nodes I think you should
get snapping behavior that somehow takes precedent over the

Actually (Diederik please correct me if I'm wrong), snapping to
objects always worked with entire paths. Although I agree it would be
useful to provide a "snapping to path nodes only" mode.

I don't personally see much reason for wanting to snap to a bounding
box. It's only weakly related to the underlying geometry. A (corner)
node, on the other hand, is a visible geometric feature.
