Photoshop: Pencil Brush Tip (Erodible Round) stays as Brush Tip Shape even when switching to other tool presets. System restart sometimes fixes it

Thank you Photoshop team for all you do. Painting is such a joy.

I love painting in Photoshop. I dabble every day creating realistic brushes. So I'm making brush tool presets much more than your average user.

This bug seems to happen when I load in an existing set of brush tool presets whilst using a pencil brush tool.

The Brush Tip Shape (Erodible Round) stays as the Tip across all my tools! Which is unfortunate as I plan on selling my brushes soon and the pencil with tilt seems to be causing problems.

Thanks for any helps in advance.

Thanks Jeffrey! Very exciting news re all the brush changes. Please PM me if you would like to acquire more high quality painterly tools. I've got a large custom set I've been working on the last few years, and can send a DB link.

Actually not even a system reboot fixes it. Which is not so good at all. I guess deleting preferences is the best option; but then I have to set everything back again.

Are you loading Tool Presets or Brush Presets? We need more explicit steps to reproduce.

Thanks Jeffrey, definitely Tool Presets. 
OK – I have just been able to reproduce many times this morning.

To reproduce in latest PS 2015.5.1 on mac.

1. Delete Photoshop settings file on boot.

2. Start New - OK

3. In previously reset Essentials Layout - Open Tool Preset Palette from Window menu

4. Select 2B Pencil Preset from previously reset tools.

5. Draw with it.

6. Load Tool Presets from Tool Palette menu

7. Load a set of previously saved tools.

8. Upon loading these most of the dual brush brushes don't work properly. And seem to get stuck on a particular tip.

9. Some brushes will show pencil as main tip.

Thanks. Our QE was able to repro so and engineer can look into it.  A workaround at this time is to load the Tool Preset with a different tool active. i.e. Clone tool to load the Brush Tool Presets.
