Agree with 96 John if the over flow fills up its going to push water causing suction. I just checked mine my vent and over flow right next to each other. Vent drops behind tank.

Yup, air pressure out of the overflow. Guess it is dual-purpose. Will try a small hole in it at the high point per Golferguy.

I drilled a 1/8" hole in the top side of my overflow line.
Filled it from the city/fill valve until it was flowing out pretty good.
I shut off water and went to the new hole I drilled. Put my finger over the hole and the water was a steady strem. When I removed it, the water slowed. Finger back on, it increased. One more time off and siphon stopped.
So, yes, the hole drilled in the vent line worked! I will still open the door and watch from here on out

Does water shoot out of the hole you drilled when water is flowing out of the tube?

It dribbled out a little.
