Photoshop: Old Layer Comps shouldn't hide everything inside a new Layer Group.

When you have several Layer Comps and then create a new Layer Group, then add new Layers inside that group and revisit previously created Layer Comps, there is an unexpected behavior:

The "old" Layer Comps make that Layer Group visible (and any nested Layer Groups), but recursively hides all Layers inside that Layer Group (and any Layer inside those nested Layer Groups).

A better behavior for old Layer Comps would be to hide the top level Layer Group, and retain the properties of all nested Layers and Layer Groups inside it.

Visually it would look identical to the current behavior, but would make using Layer Comps easier for designers to use during the design process, so they could easily make changes and additions and wouldn't have to toggle visibility on every nested layer for previously created Layer Comps.
