split features is not working properly

in the current master on win, split feature is not working (no split is performed, and the message "an error occured during feature splitting" appears), if the cut line is not snapped at its start and end point to exixting features, not important if that to be splitted or other.
I checked this bug as blocker because it's a regression. older versions worked properly.

just to be more clear, I'm referring to the split feature tool in the advanced editing toolbar.
Making some other tests, I found that the tool works correcly if the user create at least 2 further vertex out of the feature(s)to be splitted before ending the splitting line.

I can confirm the issue also on Linux.
If just a straight line (with just two nodes) is drawn then qgis returns
"An error occured during feature splitting"
If the cut line has 3 nodes (2 before crossing the feature, or 1 before and 1 inside) then the cut operation fails silently.
If the cut line has 3 or more nodes, at least 2 after crossing the feature, then it seems to work, but edits are:
- sometimes discarded when saving
- sometimes are saved, but a previous saved cut disappear
- sometimes after finishing a cut
before savinga previous vanished cut shows again

Sounds good to me. Are you thinking about using two rubberbands with two distinct colors for that, one being always a temporary line with two nodes?
Another solution would be to add the possiblity to mark a point in the rubberband as "dangling/uncommitted" and change the rubberband paint method accordingly.

I would have some time to do this, but we would have to discuss it first.
I would prefer Matthias' solution with a single rubber band. Having the last segment as a dash line would probably be a good way to go, but right now rubber bands do not handle this. Or we could play with thickness only.
I'll have a look.
