Locked smart object ui issue when toggling smart filters

using the darkest ui color theme

Spotted a minor ui problem:

1. Create a smart object.

2. Apply a smart filter.

3. Lock the smart object using the layers panel's "Lock All" button.

4. Now attempt to toggle that smart filter you applied.

The eye icon will disappear, yet the smart filter isn't disabled.
Eye icon shouldn't disappear, but does.

Now the layers panel is "lying" to you about which smart filters are enabled or disabled.

It doesn't happen if all smart filters for the respective smart object are disable via the eye icon next "Smart Filters", though:


1. Unlock that smart object you created.

2. Disable the smart filter.

3. Use "Lock All" on the smart object.

4. Now attempt to re-enable that smart filter.

The eye icon will reappear.
And if you click the eye icon again, it doesn't go away but get slightly brighter (less transparent?).
Eye icon shouldn't reappear, but does.

Please pass along to the ui boys.
Thanks for reading.
