Does it still happen with the devbuild?

As long as no third party browser bases its version on Chrome 33 and also includes the bug, should we do anything about it? I couldn't reproduce this so far with any of my Chrome 34/35 instances.

I tested some older Chrome versions. And this happens in Chrome 31 to 33, when using Shadow DOM.

The best we can do here is not using Shadow DOM in those versions of Chrome. Note that this will bring back #309 to users of Chrome 31 and 33. However that issue is way less significant than this issue. Also note that we already stopped using Shadow DOM on Chrome 32 to work around an other issue.
