This is a one-line fix that affects incorrect redraw when moving SVG elements. It landed right after the M17 branch point unfortunately, but it shouldn't affect stability and it's a really silly bug to have. Is there any chance this change can still make it into M17?

I realise this missed the M17 branch, but testing in v18.0.1025.11 beta (google-chrome ebuild on gentoo) it appears to be fixed although this bug report doesn't reflect that yet (perhaps fixed as a side effect of other changes).
Thanks to whoever merged the fix anyway...
