PHOTOSHOP CC 2015.1 - Filter->Render->Lighting Effects light selection issue

Hi All

I have been using the PhotoshopFilter, Render Lighting Effects for some time now, however since a recent Photoshop CC2015 upgrade it appears that if I try to select a light by using the mouse the wrong light is selected, this is a big issue when I have a scene with multiple light sources especially if they are off screen. (Its a bit like trying to play a game that you cannot win as the mouse click selects a different light)

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Photoshop but the problem still exists.
Has anyone else had this problem ? if so do you know of a fix.
I have currently restored the previous version that works, but am now a few version updates behind so will need a fix to keep using the current version which i am paying for each month !

I am running Photoshop an a Mac Pro late 2013 (fireproof D700) and on a Macbook Retina Pro (Nvidia GE Force 650M)
Both machines have the same problem.

Photoshop hasn't had an update since January.
Can you double check exactly which version of Photoshop you are using (in Help->System Info)?

The problem started after the January update so I restored to the previous version.
and have been using it since as i use this feature all of the time for work.
I have been avoiding updates since this time as I do not want to break the install again.

The problem is not in 2015.0.1 but is in the current version 2015.1.2
I have 2015.0.1 installed on my mac pro with no problems

Today I uninstalled 2015.0.1 along with all Adobe products from my macbook pro laptop
and then reinstalled the latest version 2015,1.2 the problem is there again.

Thank You
