Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

Use MS Edge (the current version at the time of writing in Win10 10240) - this does not happen in any other browser (IE 11, Chrome, FF, Safari, Opera, etc.)

Navigate to this page:

Use the mouse wheel in the center component to slowly zoom into the diagram.

Observe that sometimes the nodes don’t show any texts, but panning the diagram (by dragging the mouse) or changing the zoom level more will make them reappear at the correct location.

When the text do not display, open the F12 tools and inspect the dom at the (estimated) location of the text and observe that the text element can correctly be identified. Modifying some (unrelated CSS) or the text content of the xml element, the text is rendered correctly immediately.

Expected Results:

The rendering and the SVG DOM should always be in sync and SVG text elements should not jump to different locations or disappear.

Actual Results:
