Pen tool (mask) becomes Add vertex tool when close to path

Hi everyone !

This is my first post here so I hope I do this right lol ! My problem is really maddening. I want to create a mask on a shape layer (which I've done frequently) with the Pen Tool and the "Tool adds Masks" option selected. Whenever I get too close to the path of the shape, the Pen Tool becomes the Add Vertex Tool AND is adding a vertex to the shape (not the mask) !??!?
I've been using this tool frequently to animate i.e. chinese symbols (which can give crampy situations where the mask path does pass close by the shape path) and I've never had this problem before.

Thanks in advance !!

Jo

P.S.: I'm using CC 2015.3 (up-to-date as of today) on a Win10 Pro (64-bit) system.
