I'm using Photoshop CC 2017, 19.0, and can't replicate that issue. I would suggest upgrading.
I'm always hesitant to upgrade mid-project because it sometimes causes compatibility issues, but with your confirmation that the issue didn't exist in 19.0 I figured I'd give it a shot. Upon trying the new version, the issue is completely gone. Seems it was a bug after all.
Thanks for the suggestion Barbara!

This is a such a good point, srakar_sme, so for others who may read this thread in the future:
A lot of users don't realize that they can keep the old version installed when they upgrade any of the Adobe apps. By default, all previous versions of Creative Cloud apps are uninstalled when you update to the latest version. To keep the old one while upgrading, just click Advanced Options after you click on Upgrade, and deselect Remove old versions to retain previously installed versions of software.
And remember that with your active subscription, you can always reinstall old versions if you forget and the new one isn't working for you.
Just so that you are aware, 19.1 is the most current version, but it introduced a bug in the Character panel such that when making changes to text there is no live preview until you ok the change. I'm waiting for that to be fixed before updating from 19.0 to 19.1
