[Bug] Geo with edge softening and history doesn't update

Hi McNeel
In the latest version (7.5.21096.11001) I’m seeing the render mesh of geometry with edge softening and history applied not updating if transformed. In the attached file, try to rotate, move, scale, taper, shear etc. the left piece. On my system the wireframe updates as expected, but the render mesh stays in place. All is good if edge softening is turned off.
