graphviz 2.26.0 and higher, layout engine detection fix (linux)

Fixup for graphviz 2.26.0+ Layout Engine Detection, see

I dont know wether this is a derivate 1/graphviz Problem 2.
From graphviz dot Manpage: "-Klayout override the default layout engine implied by the command name.". This does not work in projectplanplugin/0.11/trunk/projectplan/ (may caused by non-shell execution), neither the implication nor the -K option.
After some Tests it seems, the -K is explicit hard-coded: "dot dot ..." instead of "dot -Kdot ..." works and "dot ..." returns the same Error as "dot -K ...".

For now a (temporary/selectable) workaround would be nice.
