I use version 3.0.8
By accident I stumbled across a minor bug.
I wanted to connect two arcs seamlessly with a third arc. (Image 1)
So I drew two straight lines at right angles at the end of each arc, and at the crossing I put the center point of a circle. (Image 2)
Out of curiosity I zoomed in to the end of the second arc and discovered that the circle did not go through the end point of the arc, even tough I snapped it to the end point. (Image 3)
I could trim the circle to the wanted arc and the arc is displayed without any displacement.
So it seems that only the display of the circle is faulty, not the internal representation of it.

Reason for closing: Fixed
Additional comments about closing: Caused by new approximation of arcs with splines. New implementation reverts back to line segments.
