Photoshop CC 2019: Masks not applying to smart filters

I often run dust and scratches as a smart filter and fill the mask with black and just bring it back where needed.  Since updating to 2019, if I save a file, then re-open it, or batch process flat files, the filter is applied to the whole image, rather than just what it is masked to.  I have to turn the mask off, then back on for it to apply.  I had to re-open 160 images and render the smart object layer to fix them.

Please update to 20.0.2 which was released late last night. It should fix this issue.

Thanks for reporting!
