Yeah. The basic idea is, that when you drag on the curve near an endpoint
you dont want to change the curve at the other endpoint. So I have to
move the handle from the near endpoint more drastically to achieve
the "curve-dragging" effect. Maybe I should limit the ratio at some point...

Anyway: It is not too hard to get the control-point back: Simply drag
the curve near the anchor towards the anchor. The controlpoint will
appear as quick as he went away earlier :-)
