    Alpha Track Matte'd layer does not gets masked when it has layer styles.

      I'm trying to understand why this is happening to some layers I've got in a comp in CS6. 

       

      I have a layer with some styles applied to it:  gradient overlay, stroke, etc.  When I set the track matte of that layer to 'Alpha Matte <layer>' the layer refuses to get masked properly.  However, when I remove the styles the layer is then masked out as expected.  Is it not possible to use Alpha Matte track mattes when a layer has style applied to it?

       

      Thanks,
