I'm experiencing the following issue.

1. "Snap Vector Tools and Transforms to Pixel Grid" is on
2. When I, creating a new shape (rectangle or ellipse etc ...) and hold SHIFT (to do a perfect square or circle) the shape I'm creating is not aligned to pixel grid as it should be.
3. I'm experiencing this issue after 13.0.1 update.
4. Check the video -

Very frustrating issue.
Adobe please take this into consideration.

Until this is fixed, a work around is to use Quick Create to make the initial shape ( click once on the doc with the shape tool and enter equal width and height) Transforming the resulting shape will keep snap behavior.
