Smart Sharpen preview does not work when invoked by an action

When I run an action that invokes the Smart Sharpen filter, the preview of the full sized image (not the one inside the little preview box) does not work correctly in PS 2015.1.2 (OS X 10.9.5).

I have an action that goes through several steps and ends with a applying Smart Sharpen. This step was inserted into the action via the "Insert Menu Item..." command of the Actions panel. The Smart Sharpen dialog does open and the effect of the sharpening is seen in the image, but when I turn preview off and back on, it stays off until I change some values. When I invoke Smart Sharpen manually (not through an action) this does not happen.

This may seem like a very small annoyance but it does hamper my workflow which often involves running this action and then repeatedly toggling the preview by pressing the p-key in order to better judge the effect of the sharpening on the image.
