Crazy rays produced when selecting a path with many anchor points
When selecting a path with lots of anchor points (1000+) I've been getting crazy rays bursting from the path in all directions in a huge multitude of colors. It's been happening for about a 2 months now. Mainly happens when using group selection tool. All functionality and visibility of the art is lost when this happens and I need to deselect all art in order to carry on. I've attached some images of what the screen looks like when this happens.

Don’t ask me why it does this? The only common denominator I see is it only happens when I move vector art from Fresco to Ai on the desktop. If I select an anchor point within a group and make some other type of selection (Don’t ask me for specifics because I’m not sure? I just know it’s happening when selecting anchors) Ai goes into what I call ‘Freak Mode’ and just starts randomly displaying strange color selections. These will continue to change and display for like eight minutes. It’s kind of beautiful in a way, but highly frustrating. If I don’t want to wait I have to force quit Ai and relaunch. I screen grabbed several images and managed to capture the last few seconds in a video screen capture too. Not sure if anyone else has ever ran into this before? But it’s happened to me enough to know it only happens with vector art pushed from Fresco to Ai on Desktop then working within that file in Ai, it’s never happened in any other context for me.
