Dupliverts don't work when a modifier is added to duplicator object

Short description of error
The cycles viewport won't stop udpating itself when a dupliverts parent object has a mirror modifier (or some other modifiers) applied to it. By "won't stop updating," I mean that it continuously renders sample 1 out of n. In my experience, this also stops the dupliverts from rendering in F12 cycles render.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Create a plane
  2. Enter edit mode on the plain
  3. Select all vertices
  4. Drag all vertices down, away from the origin
  5. Add but do not apply a mirror modifier in the Z direction
  6. Create a cube (as a separate object, so enter object mode first)
  7. Make the cube a child object of the plane
  8. Enable dupliverts on the plane
  9. Enter cycles render mode
  10. Enter rendered mode in viewport


  1. Apply the mirror modifier
