Short description of error
when trying to snap a vertex and the object is inside an other object that is in draw bound/wireframe mode snapping is not working

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

do steps 1 and 2 on a new blend file or download the blend file and skip to step 3.

  1. create a cube and set the display mode to bounds

  1. create a 2nd object inside that first cube and choose vertex snap mode

  1. enter edit mode on the 2nd object and try to snap a vertex to another vertex on that same object.
  1. notice that this does not work as long as the first object we created and put into bound draw mode is between the snapping object and the camera view.

Yes it is fixed. The issues was the it would snap to wireframe faces. Now it doesn't snap to wireframe faces (as you demonstrated in that video).
