Maybe I'm doing it the wrong way, but I'm not seeing this behavior.
If I set two points on the diagonal, then drop two horizontal and two
vertical construction lines on each of them, I can't set a point on
either intersection.  Or, rather, if I do, it's through dumb luck.
The program definitely snaps to the closest construction line within
the tolerance, but NOT to the intersection.

This happens with both DS1-R32 and revision 2385.

I tried drawing segments along both construction lines, and I get the
same effect.  The intersection of two lines doesn't get a snap.
