Textarea triggering inconsistent page freeze


Hi all,

Intro and Plnkr
I’m getting odd (and inconsistent) behavior on a single form on one of our applications. The page has a google map, a series of inputs, an ion-radio, and a text area. I’ve created a plnkr with the HTML structure (let me know if you need a more fleshed out version to review): https://plnkr.co/edit/hYmJzYjBMewsNBziHMxV?p=catalogue

Description of Problem
The odd behavior is that when you change back and forth form the Disposition textarea to the Signal input, (sometimes!) the page will lock up and it won’t be possible to scroll up or down anymore. The inputs continue to function, the back button in the navbar works fine, the form’s submit button submits, but you can’t scroll back up.

Solutions attempted
I’ve tried a number of different implementations of textarea based on comments on these forums, but I can’t seem to find one that avoids the freezing behavior entirely, nor is it clear what’s actually causing it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ionic Version
I’m using Ionic v1.3.1, Ionic CLI v1.7.16.
