Steps to reproduce

Navigate to the following example:

Click the “Restart Animation” button

Notice that even after the element is destroyed and rebuilt, the animation itself never stops to reset. When this code is run on Firefox, Chrome, and Safari, the animation resets to the initial frame after each button press.
