Snapping Bug when Editing Vertices in Chrome

I have found a major issue with the Snapping functionality that spans across all the applications that rely on the ArcGIS JavaScript API e.g. ArcGIS Online, Portal for ArcGIS, Web App Builder, etc. Tested in the JS API 3.19.


The Snapping works well in all browsers when we are drawing an object. However, once the object is created and we decide to edit the vertices, the snapping fails in Chrome. This works well in Firefox and MS Edge. Sometimes we can even notice that the anchor point (displayed as the plus sign) used for the snapping is stuck in one of the vertices. This affects the editing experience as anything I do causes the changed vertex to snap to the anchor point ruining the whole graphic.


Can you please fix this or suggest a workaround? You can easily test this by dragging a polygon feature service to ArcGIS Online, edit the vertices and try to use snapping. I have checked the SnappingManager and there is nothing there that I can use to override this behavior.
