I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 24.3.0 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

The simple fact is, Adobe doesn't give a flying f*ck about fixing anything in Illustrator. Illustrator is full of these kinds of glitches. It's totally unintuitive, can crash for no readily apparent reason and, putting it simply, feels like it was made in 1996. The sense of achievement one gets from producing anything in Illustrator is second only to the sense of achievement in getting it to do anything at all.
So why doesn't Adobe do anything? They have a captive market of Adobe CC Subscribers. Oh yes, and there is the other small matter of them having a MONOPOLY on Vector Drawing Software.
Oh -- and it hogs your hard drive. Files produced in Illustrator are HUGE –– much bigger than the files created in Macromedia Freehand.
Give Me Freehand of Give Me Death!!!
ps By way of an interesting footnote, as I see it Illustrator is the only core package that Adobe designed from scratch. Flagship product Photoshop was initially developed by Knoll Software, InDesign is a rework of Aldus PageMaker (which Adobe mangled badly, introducing chronic instability in Version 6 from which it never really recovered), Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Freehand were acquired from Macromedia (Fireworks and Freehand were subsequently killed in their sleep by Adobe as they were alternatives to Adobe products).
