[Kst] [Bug 128399] Resizing horizontal lines can cause a crash when maintain aspect modifier is held down.

This is part of the mouse UI only.  Once the modifier is released, the object 
can re-scale as before.

- can anyone think of when one might want this?  Personally, I have neither 
known it existed, nor wanted it.

That being said, we shouldn't ship with a know crash.
