[Kst] pixel type marker missing in Kst 2.x (as opposed to 1.6/1.7) ?

Hi Daniel,

I've just added a new point type consisting of a single point. I pushed it to git a few minutes ago.
Please test and tell me if that's what you had in mind. It looks very much like kst 1.x as far as I could see.
Also note that according to the zoom level, different points may be superimposed on your screen.

Best regards,
