Photos lose MWG regions when saved from Lightroom CC desktop

I've imported 25K photos that are all face tagged using both the MicrosoftPhoto schema (from the old Windows Live Photo Gallery) as well as the Metadata Working Group region schema. Windows only reads the MicrosoftPhoto schema, but other apps use the more standard MWG version, so I built a tool to keep them in sync.

When I "Save To..." a photo (whether edited or not) from Lightroom CC desktop, the MWG regions are stripped from the output, but the MicrosoftPhoto regions are still there. Obviously that's not ok.

When I "Download this photo" from Lightroom CC web, both sets of regions are in the output.

DewVinci,

Would you be willing to supply a sample file that exhibits the behavior so I can test with it?

Thanks for the files. I've logged an issue in the system.

Nearly 4 thousands faces, been through half of it, went to sleep, just to find that I have to go through everything again. Hit this bug. Very annoying... :-(

Do not click on the link on the post above. It is spam/phishing.
