Photoshop CC 2014: Snap to Guide does not work when transforming proportionally

I cannot snap to a guide while proportionally resizing a smart object in Photoshop CC 2014.

To be clear, I have a guide and a smart object. Moving the object will snap to the guide (snapping is turned on). But when resize proportionally, I can't snap to the guide. Snapping works when I resize un-proportionally, but that's no good for photos/art.

I'm on Mac OS 10.10 Yosemite with Photoshop with Photoshop CC 2014.2.1.

Am I missing something, or is this a bug/feature not yet implemented?

Hi Dan, I can see what you describe, but I don't need the layer to be a Smart Object layer. I seem to be able to repro with a regular old raster layer. You?

I've found a (sort of) fix for this - it has been frustrating me for so long: click one of the edges/corners of your image to start resizing (but don't actually resize yet), then click the link between width and height (that will lock the aspect ratio without you having to hold down shift) and then resize.
It won't quite "snap" to guide, but it will show you a pink/red line when it reaches your guide so you'll know when to stop resizing it (pink line for invisible guides such as the center of your image).
This doesn't happen when I resize whilst holding down shift, especially when I'm resizing an image to match the width of another image for example. Also you have to be resizing quite slowly to spot the lines... Actually, please fix this properly, Adobe...

Anyway, hope this helps!
