Sorry, my english is a little limited, so I have trouble to describe it 

The problem is, that part of object (end of line) is not displayed when 
this object (line) is grouped with other objects (another lines). 
Ungruping fix it.

Resulting size of grouped objects (lines) is broken (to small), so some 
items are cutted away. In the fact this happens when objects are 
selected too, not only when they are grouped. It can be seen on my 

Problem happens only under some circumstances (I never see it when 
grouping rectangles - for example).

It can be usefull to understand why it happens and to know some
