Summary0002572: Edges take circuitous routes in the presence of edge labels
DescriptionIf a dot graph includes edge labels, it can cause other edges to can take extraordinary routes around them, weaving in and out of labels and other nodes.

However if the edge labels are removed then the result is sensible.
Steps To ReproduceThe attached file dot-weird.dot reproduces the problem. I have tested with:

* graphviz 2.38.0 (20140413.2041) under OSX 10.9.5 (homebrew)
* graphviz 2.36.0 (20140111.2315) under Ubuntu 14.04.3 (apt-get)

Look in particular at the upward edge from node "abcde_cancel_acknowledged" to ellipse "acknowledged"
