Photoshop CC: The Liquify Filter isn't working on image masks

I have an image which includes an exposure layer with a layer mask based off another image. The problem is that the images aren't quite aligned so the layer mask is now slightly distorted. Yesterday before updating to Photoshop CC from Photoshop CS6 Extended I did some of the work. Today I come in load up my .psd file from LR5 and discover that the Liquify tool no longer works on the exposure mask layer, nor does the liquify tool work on any of the other layer masks. What happened. My troubleshooting on my MBPr with OS X 10.8 (current as per Software Update) has thus far entailed:

Attempting to rid my system of all CC including downloading the CC cleaner tool from Adobe (even though it left a mess in my Library, does an adobe product EVER really uninstall?)

I've deleted the preferences from the Liquify filter under Library/Preferences/Adobe/Plugins...

And I've completely reinstalled (and then had to UPDATE Photoshop CC as soon as I installed it, you would think that Adobe was trying to make us HATE the new CC... WTF mate?!)

Hi Hunter, are you still having issue with running liquify on layer masks? Do you by chance have a vector mask on the same layer as the layer mask you're trying to edit?
