This has happened to me forever and every so often I ask to see if there's a solution. It seems like a bug.
Here's the process.
I've again documented the process and am attaching all the images at the end.
See specs & hardware:
OSX 10.8.5PS CC 14.2.1 x64
This also happens at home with
PS CC 14.2.1 x64
Trackpad or USB mouse
If rasterized this tends to not happen but that's not a solution because it takes away the advantage of Smart Objects.
Image 6 is the second Free Transform.
Any help is appreciated.
