Line "segments"

Has anybody else noticed how Painter seems to buid up lines (in some cases) in segments? There are two instances I've noticed this behaviour, firstly when holding down the shift key to draw a horizontal or vertical line, there seems to be a minimum length of line you can draw. I often try to draw a very short line whilst holding down shift and it won't do it, I have to draw a slightly longer line and then erase. The second instance is when snapping to a curve, again Painter seems to split the line into segments, I often find that I have to go slightly beyond where I want the line to stop.

Has anybody else noticed this? Is there setting I can change?
