Artboards do not snap to whole pixels
When the snap to pixel option is turned on and I use the Artboard Tool dragging the corner of the artboard results in random decimals.
Say if my artboard is 512x512 and I drag a corner out it will now be dragging at every pixel but with a random decimal rather than a integer. this decimal will be the same at every snapped pixel until I let go. at this point if I move it again a new random decimal will be added.
These two screenshots show issue values. take not it is random and the X and Y values do not always match.
I am using Illustrator 22.0.0 (64-bit)
and windows 10 pro Version 1511

Illustrator version: 22.0.1:
- With Snap to Grid ON (and snap/align to pixels off)
- Using Artboard tool, create a new artboard.
- Now resize that new artboard allowing snapping to align the artboard to the grid.
- Now using the zoom tool, zoom in to see artboard is NOT accurately aligned to the grid.
Happens when GPU acceleration is ON and OFF.
Screen recording attached.

1. Illustrator 22.0
2. Use artboard tool to snap to highlighted anchor point
3. Should snap exactly to the anchor point
4. Artboard "snaps" but is actually off the anchor by a couple thousandths of an inch. Previous version worked fine (CC 2017)
