Photoshop Bug? Textlayer in Folder with opacity has a different appearance than Textlayer with same opacity outside a Folder

I have a weird behavior here: Having a folder with 50% opacity containing a Textlayer with color black is darker than the same Textlayer outside a folder with opacity set to 50%.
Rasterising the Text makes both layers look the same.

Hi Thomas,

Good catch.  You are correct.  Due to some technical limitations with the gamma value of text, the two do not match.

Thanks,
David
