[pstricks] lineAngle

At least on my system, specifying lineAngle=0 does have an effect (see  
the red and green lines), as shown by the following code, which also  
shows the dramatic difference between lineAngle=0 and lineAngle=-001.

\rput(2,1){\ovalnode{A}{node A}}
\rput(4.5,5.5){\dianode{B}{node B}}
\ncdiag[lineAngle=.001]{A}{B}% black
\ncdiag[linecolor=red]{A}{B}% lineAngle unspecified
