gluepoint bug in draw

I created a component with 3 terminals. For each terminal, I added a gluepoint specifying a direction. For example, for the up-right terminal, I added a gluepoint with up direction. But, when I try to make a connection, it goes to left direction.

Reproduced with the document.

The drawing didn't have glue points. I added one to the tip of the topmost line and clicked the Exit direction top button in the glue point toolbar.
Upon adding a connector starting from the glue point, it first went left.
