Summary0012330: Bad selection X,Y for thick lines
DescriptionWhen selecting a line, the selection coordinates are wrong
AND on screen, it looks like there are 2 selection zones instead of only one.

It seems easyer to understand whats wrong using a vertical line, but the issue is there too with oblique lines, and seemingly horizontal lines too.

Problem has consequences in various circumstances (as noted by GregP on and following)

Steps To Reproduce- Create short line with big thickness (uploaded examples have 20mm thickness)
- Select it
- See selection zone
1) there are 2 dotted shapes as if there were 2 selections for this single object
2) it does not follow the shape of the line.
TagsNo tags attached.

As the screenshots display it, not only X,Y is wrong, but also the size of the selection rectangle.
