Good news (I hope)!
I was finally able to make progress on this. On the machine with the fix, I was able to open a diagram created by SSMS 17.9.1 (on a different machine). The same diagram opened with 18.3.1 resulted in a crash.
I’ll do more testing in the next few days and go over all the comments on this page to make sure I capture all the scenarios and make sure they are really fixed.
It’s looking good, I really hope… :)

This is a serous issue. I've hit a point where I just assume it's going to crash and instead create new diagrams. Having to wait for an SSMS restart isn't worth it.

This is a serious issue. The diagrammer was a valuable and useful too. I am, quite frankly, taken aback MS would simply remove it. WTF? Seriously, are you letting people that don't use SSMS for a living make these decisions? No SSMS 18 for me. Staying with 17 until you fix it. It's broken.
