I've encountered a bug when using a Layer Based Slice and the Drop Shadow Layer Effect. See the image below:

For some reason, Photoshop insists on increasing the vertical and horizontal size of a Layer Based Slice by one pixel when using a drop shadow.

Is anyone else seeing the same bug?

Yup. I can repro this behavior. Strange. If I merge the layer down into an empty layer to flatten the drop shadow layer style, the layer based slice snaps to the correct bounds. We'll investigate. Thanks. Cool find.

Definitely seeing the issue here as well. Seems easy to reproduce and consistent.
