Additional Information

This is a limitation in the graphics system. However to get around it, turn off the fancy sketch symbology. To do this, go to the Editing options. On the General page, unchecked the 'Use symbolized feature during editing' check box. This takes the sketch back to wire-frame, but no drawing issues.
