Batch Action Producing Incorrect/Inconsistent Results on Opened Files

I encountered a bug with running a Batch action on a series of opened files. It produced inconsistent results across a batch of opened PNG files.

Steps to problem:
• Created an action that included these steps: Set Image Size to 50%, Save, Close.
• Opened all files for batch.
• Ran a Batch action on Opened Files with no other special conditions.

Results on multiple consecutive attempts:
• A few of the files correctly scaled to 50%
• Most of the files completely unchanged
• 1 file cropped to a single pixel

Note: This batch worked correctly when applied to a Folder rather than Opened Files. The files themselves were a series of 39 PNG sprites, with some transparency, that needed to be scaled down to 50% of their original size.
