Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

Look at the following fiddle:

This should initially show a blue circle
Click the Add button to add a ‘circle’ element under the SVG node, causing a red circle to be displayed.
Click the Remove button. This only removes the red circle from the DOM, but in Edge the blue one also incorrectly disappears.

This test works fine in all other browsers (Firefox, Chrome, IE11)

Expected Results:

Making changes to unrelated elements within the DOM should not make others disappear.

Actual Results:
