I tried to replicate the issue on my side but with no avail. Therefore I created a sample test page based on the provided code. Could you please examine it and tell if you replicate the same problem with it. If not, please try to identify the relevant differences between the sample and your real project and share them. In this manner we might be able to find the source of the problem at your end.
