D365BC product group created a simple proof of concept based on the latest NuGet package Report Viewer (RV) control that showcase the issue lies on the control bits.
D365BC team then handshake the request to SQL Server Reporting Service (SSRS) team that owns the RV product management and bug fix process.
SSRS team dissected the problem and created another proof of concept for Windows core group that demonstrate an issue with the Windows Graphic Driver Interface (GDI) libraries.
Windows core group acknowledge the issue being in the W10, WS2016 and WS2019 libraries.
