Title: overlapping splines in dot
Submitter: John Ellson
Date: Tue Nov 6 22:52:35 2007
Subsys: Dot
Version: cvs
System: *-*-
Severity: minor
Problem:
dot's splines will occasionally cross over each other unnecessarily, and will sometimes exhibit sharp bends. Not sure if this is one or two problems, but you can see them both on the same a->h edge in the example attached.

Other examples are the Interdata -> "Unix/TS 3.0" edge in crazy.dot and edges at the 45deg corners in pgram.dot

There are worse examples.....
Input:

digraph G {
        a -> {c d e f g} -> h
        {b x y z} -> d
        {a b} -> h
}
