@Michael Carroll (mkec), It is always a good idea to give full descriptive titles and descriptions to the reports.

@Joerg Mueller (nexyon), do you mind having a look into this? Here's a patch which fixed issue in original report, so maybe it's something similar needed now:

Hmm, it works fine for me, but I'm on linux, not on a mac. Could someone with a mac try to reproduce this?

Sorry about the title, and thanks. I have never run a patch or even compiled blender but I am willing to try if someone can point me to instructions.

Is this still a problem with 2.78a?
