Incorrect step shown as visited when ScreenFlow is launched



User has configured a screenflow to be launched from a normal flow. After the screen flow gets processed user returns to the normal flow. When the screen flow is launched for the first time, there are no issues observed. However, when launched for second or successive times, the screen flow shows second step with a tick mark though screen flow is at first step.

Error Messages

No error messages.

Steps to Reproduce

a) Create a section with a repeat grid. 
b) On click of the column cell of grid , configure 'FinishAssignment' action. 
c) Create a flow rule that has an assignment shape and a sub-shape to launch the screen flow. 
d) Run the flow. Repeat grid will be shown to user. 
e) Click on a column value and it will launch the screen flow. 
f) Finish the screen flow launched and user will return to the original flow. 
g) Click on another row to launch the screen flow again. 
h) It is observed that incorrect step of screen flow has a tick(completion) mark shown for it.
