Summary0015595: Detach Text from Path opens path
DescriptionWhen I attach a path to a closed shape such as a circle or square and detach the text again, the shape becomes an open path instead of a closed one.

This is "surprsising" at best but has negative consequences when you want to recover a path from a base path like this and then go on filling, intersecting or combining this supposedly closed shape with others.
Steps To ReproduceCreate a closed shape (circle, polygon)
confirm that it is closed (properties: no arrows selectable, or open the path editor)
create text box
Attach Text to Path
confirm that the shape is still closed
Detach Text from Path
confirm that the shape is not closed anymore (i.e. open)
Additional InformationNote that the path is opened (cut) at the node which the attach tool considers the start point ("start point of the closed path"), but it is still closed as along as the text is attached. Detaching opens it.

Tested and confirmed with 1.4.6, 1.5.4 and 1.5.5svn

Workaround: open the path editor and "close" the path
TagsNo tags attached.
