How to remove a portion of a closed object, to turn it into an open object?

I would like to remove (like in cut away) a circular portion from a rectangle, leaving an open object. Tried using the Path > Difference tool, but it results in a closed object.

Attached image (screen shot from Inkscape, edited in MS-Paint so looks bit crude), explains what I am trying to achieve.



You probably just have to “convert path to object” (Ctrl-Alt-C) before the substraction.
