Photoshop CC 10 bit/channel: Display problem

I just purchased a Eizo monitor with 10 bit support and I am experiencing some really annoying "chroma banding". System details:
- Windows 10 64 bit.
- PS CC 2015.1.1. 10 bit enabled in Performance tab.
- FirePro W8100. Driver 15.201.2401.0. 10 bit enabled in Control Center.

Steps:
- Create 1000x200 Profoto 16 bit canvas.
- Create a horizontal gradient from pure black (left) to pure white (right).

On the black and gray size (left of the image), there are very noticeable bands with greenish color. If I change the color space to Adobe, the green banding is reduced but still noticeable. The green banding is gone if changed to sRGB color space.

If I change Drawing mode to Basic, the green banding is gone, but the 10bit support is also gone; I can see all the grey banding typical on a 8 bit monitor.

I have attached a photo of how the three compare. From top to bottom, Profoto, sRGB, Adobe. I had to take a picture because Windows does not allow screen capture on 10 bit!

Is there any current solution to this problem or do we have to wait for a software upgrade.

Regards,

Is there an official acknowledgment from Adobe about this issue?
