I don't understand what you mean by "gap"? Are you saying that having a
corner at a node makes edit->stroke path leave gaps? Can you create a
screenshot?

yeah, that might make sense - my first attempt would put the threshold
at the radius of the node representation.

Note that if you drag the path closely to one node, the handle on the
opposite node will not be moved. Only a (largeish) area in the middle
moves both handles simultaneously (yet still with a shifting weight
depending on where you drag).

Again - I have no idea what gaps you are referring to. Maybe a
screenshot can help.
