Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

modify plane in attached file with e.g. sculpt. Cube don't get repositioned with shrinkwrap constraint until switching to editmode and back or attempting to move it. As a workaround, simple scene_update_post script enables live update.
On contrary, shrinkwrap modifier updates instantly.

This is update issue… Actually, with new depsgrah (--enable-new-depsgraph option from command line), shrinkwrap constraint also updates in Edit mode e.g.

Not in sculpt mode though, not sure we want to add this? Will let our despgraph master @Sergey Sharybin (sergey) decide this I think. ;)

Sculpt mode avoids flushes as much as possible in order to keep best performance and less amount of lack when sculpting.

Committed change which ensures scene is bought back to a consistent state when leaving sculpt more (before the scene was not updated when going to object mode from sculpt).

Surely there might be some further tweaks, but those are outside of the bug tracker actually.
