JavaScript "ArtLayer.visible" property - bug/sudden change from previous versions

I noticed one of my scripts started doing weird things, because of a change in Photoshop JavaScript processing considering ArtLayer.visibility property for layers in a group. Consider this

Group1 [Visibility checkbox/eye UNCHECKED]
--- Layer1 [Visibility checkbox/eye CHECKED]

Previously (months ago) the "Layer1.visibility" was true exactly when the layer visibility checkbox was checked.

Currently the "Layer1.visibility" is true only if the checkbox is true, BUT ALSO Group1.visibility is true as well. So how to get the true state of the visibility check box now?

I understand the new concept, but my script needs to store states of visibility of all layers and restore them later. Currently, there seems to be no way to detect visibility states for layers in invisible groups :(

Are you familiar with the Action Manager code? It is more low level. DOM is based on that.
