Bug report #15545

Vertical or horizontal Polyline in Composer doesn't show up (if not selected) and cannot be edited (but exported)

I can add polylines to a map composition, but when it's strictly vertical or horizontal it is only displayed while selected (without correct width / color). I cannot edit node items on those lines. It doesn't matter if it consists only of two or more nodes, as long as it's strictly horizontal or vertical (two nodes in a diagonal are no problem). It shows up on PDF exports. I doubt it's a matter of the graphics card because it won't show the nodes when I try to edit it. The behavior starts immediately in the moment I delete the last node of a polyline that used to be not strictly vertical or horizontal but becomes so by deleting the other nodes.
