Flow fails to resolve <sobjectTypeVariableName>.<fieldName> during writing InterviewHistory on a Flow runtime navigation error

Consider a Flow that has a Assignment element→Screen element→Fast create. Let the fast create fail for any valid reason.
Actual Result:
The Flow throws internal server error while writing the InterviewHistory and fails to report the actual flow failure (which is the failure of fast create).
Expected Result:
The flow reports the actual failure of flow element.

Steps to replicate:

1.In a fresh org,Create two custom fields on case object as follows
Field Label f1 Object Name Case
Field Name f1 Data Type Text
API Name f1__c Length 20
Field Label pf2 Object Name Case
Field Name pf2 Data Type Picklist
API Name pf2__c
Restrict picklist to the values defined in the value set YES

2.Create two account objects named a1,a2
3.Now, goto setup→workflows & approvals→ Flows
4.Click new to open the cloud flow designer
5.First, create an Assignment element name as "assign1" that assigns value to the SOBJECT variable of type CASE as follows and make it as a starting element.

{!caseSobj.Status} equals New
{!caseSobj.pf2__c} equals THREE
Note: Set caseSobj.pf2__c to a static value of THREE so that the fast create would fail with an invalid value for restricted picklist error.
6.Now create a Screen element screen1 with a dropdownlist box f1, backed by a dynamic record choice {!dchoice}
7.Details of the dynamic record choice dchoice is as follows
Dynamic Record Choice:
Value Data Type: Text
create a choice for each: Account
Field: Name contains a

Choice Label: Name
Choice Stored value: Name
Sort results by: Name Ascending

Additional options:
Field: Name
variable: {!caseSobj.f1__c}

8.Finally add a fast create of the SOBJECT variable {!caseSobj}
Name: fastCreate1
Assignments: Variable - {!caseSobj}

9.Now run the flow - the screen element appears and populates the drop down list box with the account names a1,a2 in it.

10.Choose anything and click next
11. We expect the flow fast create to fail and report that the the restricted picklist field case.pf1__c is having an invalid value THREE but it throws the below error
