Dalai Felinto (dfelinto) triaged this task as Confirmed priority.

@Sergey Sharybin (sergey) do you know if this is a depsgraph issue?

Problem still exists for Cycles

Problem still exists for Cycles

Cycles is considering all dupli objects as _dupli_child_original, and need to be hidden.
But since the other engines dont hide the dupli child orininal, I dont know why Cycles have to be different.
Maybe the original child should be hidden only with the F12 rendering.

See object_render_hide from blender_object.cpp
