Lightroom Classic: Compare function in Develop module does not work with the new raw profiles

I have been eager to try the new RAW Profiles released recently.  But they don't seem to work within the Develop Compare function.  For example, let's say I apply 4-5 profiles successively.  And then I want to use the Compare function to help me choose the one I like best.  The program won't let me click-and-drag previous states from the History panel.
I am a long-time user of Lr and I know  how it is supposed to work.  You choose the Y|Y Compare function and it is supposed to allow you to click previous Develop steps and drag them into the left pane of Before/After.  With these new profiles, the clicking-and-dragging does not work, or if it does at all, it is very sporadic: maybe you can drag one earlier version in, but if you try to click-and-drag another one, nothing changes in the Before panel.  But substantially, it just doesn't work.

 Lightroom Classic CC 7.5 was released today and should address this issue.  If you don’t see the update in your Creative Cloud App, hit the [Ctrl/Cmd]+ [Alt/Opt]+[R] to force a refresh. 

Give the new version a try and let us know if it solves the issue.
