Photoshop 2017: Script Events no longer trigger in New Document using new GUI

When using the new GUI in Photoshop 2017 for creating a new document in Photoshop, script events that are setup to trigger on 'New Document' do not fire and so they fail to run.

Reverting to the old 'Legacy' New Document GUI fixes the problem straight away.

This is pretty bad as we rely on script events to trigger on 'New Document' to setup layers automatically. This should function for both old & new GUI's regardless.

Can this be fixed up please as I like the new GUI with its quick shortcuts to recent document sizes and standard photo/paper sizes.
