[Kst] [Bug 121108] Kst assertion failure when line or arrowmoved outside of window

If I understand what you're saying correctly then I would disagree.
To be consistent the line should not allow one of its end points
to be dragged outside the parent. I believe this is the behaviour if you
are resizing labels, rectanges, ellipses, etc. and lines should clearly work
the same way. The only way to reparent is to move an object.

Any flicker is due to broken clipping.  Reparenting is easy:

        while (line->_parent && static_cast<KstViewObject*>(line->_parent)
          KstViewObjectPtr p = static_cast<KstViewObject*>(line->_parent);
