Multiple usage displayed for one-instance elements (#286)

From time to time, the multiple usage indicator comes on for elements NOT reused. It can start when doing something simple such as selecting multiple elements and moving them on the diagram. The element browser shows them as used in only one diagram.

It can be displayed also when an element is used twice on one diagram. In that case the element browser shows usage only on one diagram. New instance of an element can be created (on the same diagram), when you unwittingly drag an element with pressed right mouse button. If it is not that case, please, let me know. I will analyze other possibilities which could happen.

Well, as far as I can see, there are at least no visible copies in the diagram. And also, this is a kind of ghost bug, next time I open the project, the markers are gone. The bug only occurs (I think) only when selecting multiple elements, and dragging them short distances, that is when there is an overlap between their previous position and their new position.

Thanks for your clarification. I will analyze it.
