Move tool doesn't select layers with mask anymore (since latest cc update, 14.2.1)

Ever since the latest CC update (version 14.2.1) the move tool can no longer select layers with masks on them. This seems to be true for both vector and normal masks. I know you fixed a bunch of other random problems and that have been plaguing photoshop for years with selecting both pixel and vector shape layers and for that I am grateful, but why did you have to break one of the most critical features of the move tool?

I'm having problems with the Move tool, but they're inconsistent. There are times where I can't select one layer within a group and move it...the tool reverts to moving everything in the group. I can sometimes select and nudge an object within a group. Other times, the transform controls don't appear for any selected layer (despite the show transform controls checkbox being checked) and if I try moving anything I get an error saying the layer needs to be rasterized before performing this action.

When I experience the problem of a layer item moving the entire group, if I first interact with the transform control handles I can then move the object independently. Of course that's treated as a transform that has to be applied rather than just a simple move.
