Summary0003066: Draft clone fails with "name 'Draft' is not defined" if used first time in Draft workbench
DescriptionIt seems like variable Draft is dynamically created when a tool from Draft workbench is used.
But if the first used tool from Draft workbench is Clone it fails with:

Running the Python command 'Draft_Clone' failed:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "$HOME/src/freecad-build/Mod/Draft/", line 4832, in Activated
  File "$HOME/src/freecad-build/Mod/Draft/", line 4841, in proceed
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>

name 'Draft' is not defined
After using some other tool from Draft workbench (for example move) clone operation starts to work.
Steps To Reproduce1. New document
2. Create a solid cube in Part workbench.
3. Switch to Draft workbench.
4. Select the cube and clone it.
- Error is generated and clone operation fails.
5. Move the cube.
6. Try to clone the cube one more time. This time it works.

I quickly had a look at the code and adding the following line in method DraftClone.proceed fixes the issue.

I'm not sure if it is the right approach or if it is the right place but might be a hint for the developers.
I also included the patch.

Fixed in master. Source integration doesn't work anymore...

FYI @yorik shell access would be helpful to fix source integration
