Photoshop: 16bit image in spherical panorama

I am facing this problem when I create a spherical panorama from a 16bit equirectangular file. 
Colours look like when "linearise colours" property is unchecked in a 16-bit 3D space: everything is extremely underexposed and oversaturated However, there is no such property available from the properties panel in a spherical panorama. I need real colours in order for the stamp tool and the healing brush to work properly. 

I have a very important project coming on and I would like to do my entire workflow in 16bit.

Does anybody have this same issue? Do you know where can I find such "linearise colours" property? I leave a screenshot of Photoshop when a 16-bit spherical panorama is opened. You can see that colours in the image are far from being ok and almost everything on the right panels is greyed.

GPU acceleration is on and working (1080 gtx).

Yes, I'm having the same problem.  I reported it to Adobe, and they're supposedly working on a fix.  A workaround is to convert the image to 32- or 8-bits.
