Having issues with polygonal lasso tool.

When in mid selection, the dotted line disappears - though I am able to continue making a selection, the selection seems to jump and completes itself. Also, when plotting multiple points around rounded edges, it completes the selection, as if I were to double click. The plot points are far enough away, so this should not happen.

Furthermore, when I try the "Add to Selection" feature of the tool, I make a selection to add to the areas that were affected with the above issues, it seems I am adding to the selection, but when finished, nothing happens. This feature is not working altogether.

Other than those issue, I love the new CS6 creative suite. Nice improvement and a valuable arsenal of tools for my daily tasks :)
