Photoshop CS6: Shape rendering lags actual vector while moving handles

Vector bezier curve does not reflect actual graphic representation if vector is used as a stroke without fill.

The bezier curve visualisation gets updated if I move a handle of a different anchor point. However, the problem remains with the newly selected anchor point.

See this image to see what I mean:

To clarify: I can even move the same anchor point to make the stroke update. The graphics jump to a state before the current state of the vector. I think you process the instruction one step too late. I have restarted Photoshop and the problem persists. Using CS6 Cloud on Win7x64

Other people aren't getting a redirect loop -- which browser are you using?

If you manipulate the vector outline, then the fill preview updates when you let go of the mouse button. The same applies to fills and strokes, and full shapes or unclosed paths.

Are you seeing something where it fails to update after you let go of the mouse button?

Have you installed the 13.0.1 update?
On Windows, you might also have video card redraw delays -- make sure you've updated your video card driver from the GPU maker's website.

Yeah, sure I am releasing the mouse button. The vector outline stays like that forever and never updates until I move the anchor point again and then it updates to the position that it was supposed to be in before.

In my picture if you would move the outline, the stroke would jump to the outline depicted in the picture, but not the moved one.

I cannot reproduce this error in a completely new document but in the graphic above, it is completely reproducable. (Even after a restart of Photoshop) If you want I can send you the file.

I am using Chrome.

And have you updated your video card drivers as I said?

Yes I have 13.0.1. (I am on the Cloud). As for the drivers I am on a laptop with an AMD Radeon 6800M with the driver version 12.8 which is the latest one.

I have an i7 and 16GB of RAM. I have also had several other issues with CS6 concerning crashing in Photoshop, After Effects and Illustrator but I will submit the respective reports in the other forums or when I can identify what triggers them.
