Trace on the score page when dragging glissando

It's a little bit difficult to explain. The screencast may help to understand the problem:

As you can see, when we drag a glissando from the palette, it lets a trace in the score page. The bug occurs only when dragging from left to right, not right to left. When the cursor moves outside the score page, the traces disappear completely.

I am finding that in general, this is caused by an inaccurate "bbox" (bounding box) around the element. In some cases it's our fault, but this one might be a Qt glitch.

Marc, the gliss drag issue has been around since 1.3 days, and is caused by the "gliss" word overstepping the left edge of the bbox for both gliss objects. I'm sure there is/was an issue report on it.

Correction, my notes on the gliss bug are for v2, predating r5067. It also used to affect the first 4 tremolo symbols as well.
