Drawing oddities in 3.20 API

I have a draw tool using the draw and edit toolbar classes. The idea is that the user can draw a shape on the map. There is a UI that allows the user to select the drawn shape from a list. There is a context menu to edit the shape. The problem is with rectangle.

 

If the user starts to draw a rectangle and drags down and to the right, everything is fine. The edit UI displays, showing the top left point of the rectangle and the bottom right. However, the user cannot edit the bottom right point, to a point that is north of the top left point with out buggy behavior. In fact, if the once bottom right point (now top right) is edited a second time, the rectangle turns into a line.

 

And, this rectangle to line issue can be replicated by drawing a rectangle upside down. If the user clicks and drags north east, to make the rectangle, the top left point ends up being the bottom left.

 

I hope I explained this well enough. I understand this to be all in how the expected clockwise creation of points of a shape? Is there anything I can do to make cleaner shapes so they can be edited?
