|Newly created connection doesn't use the anchor that is provided [message #502153]

When creating a new connection using my GEF-editor's palette the connection's endpoint is always set to the fixed point (100,100), a default value if no valid anchor is provided I guess. The start point of the connection however is perfectly attached to the corresponding node. I've double-checked getTargetConnectionAnchor(Request request) of the node's editpart. It looks totally the same as getSourceConnectionAnchor(), both consist of the single line:|
return new ChopboxAnchor(getFigure());
Debugging shows that getTargetConnectionAnchor() does get called when I move the mouse over the target node and it does return a valid anchor, so I have absolutely no idea why GEF isn't using the ChopboxAnchor provided but creates a new XYAnchor for (100,100). As I said, both the target and the source function for the anchors look the same, yet only the one for the source is being used by GEF.
The attached pictures show a demonstration of the problem and the debuger's info on the connection entity.
Any ideas on this issue? Please let me know if you need more information.
