OK, this should be trivial, but has me stumped. 

I place a line on the page using the 2-point line tool. Later I want to move one end of the line. However, every selection, shift key and gesture I try wants to treat the line as a 2-D shape instead... there seems no way to just move one end.

What's the secret?

The 2 point line seems to behave like any other line here.

If I select it, I get the usual handles, and therefore can stretch it horizontally or vertically. or scale it using the corner nodes. Though if it is horizontal or vertical you will not be able to scale it in that particular direction.

Also if you use the shape tool (or just select and press F10) you can move the nodes at either end.

I'm not sure what else you might want to do with it ...

The Shape tool.  Hallelujah.  Thanks.
