Summary0004177: Sketcher polyline perpendicular/tangent line to first point collapse
DescriptionThe Sketcher polyline tool, when using the "new segment is a line which is perpendicular/tangential to the previous segment" mode (press "M" once or twice) fails when attempting to draw a line perpendicular or tangential to the first point.

See forum thread
Steps To Reproduce1) Select the Sketcher workbench and create a new sketch on the X-Y plane.
2) Click the "Create a polyline in the sketch" tool.
3) Left-click three times, to establish three corners of a box (points P1, P2, P3).
4) Move towards the fourth corner of the box. Press "m" once to switch to perpendicular line mode.
5) Move to the first point (P1), ensure it is pre-selected, and left-click on it.

Expected behavior is to create the fourth point of the box (P4). The line should have 4 vertices, connected by 3 edges, and still be active (ready to create another edge).

Observed behavior, if "Auto constraints" is NOT checked, is that P4 is created, P1 is removed, and an edge is created between P4 and P2. The line is closed (i.e., the next click will not create a new edge, instead it starts a new polyline). See first two screenshots.

Observed behavior, if "Auto constraints" is checked and the first two edges are perpendicular, is that the 3 edges are placed directly on top of each other, and there are numerous conflicting constraints defined. See last two screenshots.
