Since the 14.2 update, Smart Object functionality is broken. The Smart Objects fall out of sync with the original doc when edits to a smart object are undone with Step Backward.

Steps to Recreate:
1) Create a smart object.

2) Double-click to edit the smart object.

3) Edit, save and close the smart object. Witness desired changes to smart object in original doc.

4) Step Backward. Witness changes to smart object reverted (undone).

5) Double-click to edit the smart object a 2nd time. Witness that changes were NOT undone inside the smart object.

6) Now the Smart Object contains different (unwanted) content than what is being displayed in the original doc.
