"Render" for Cycles appears broken

Cycles is running great within the “Raytraced” viewpoint. But when I tap the “Render” button with Cycles set as renderer (to get a image of higher resolution), the status line at the bottom of the new window says it’s done but he preview looks like it stopped after 3 seconds.

Will this area be getting some love? Not a pressing matter as I can resize the viewpoint to desired sizes in most cases, but it’d be nice to have the standard render workflow work.

It will. In a few weeks I’ll be back in the office.

Enjoy your break from the office!
