Short description of error
If there's an object with a Follow Path constraint, and the target path is deformed by a modifier, the object is not following the deformed path as expected. Instead, it follows the unmodified path.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Open the attached blend file. There's a sphere with a Follow Path constraint. The sphere is correctly located at the start of the path.
  2. With object Curve1, reenable the curve modifier.

I expect the sphere to follow the deformed path, but it does not.

You will probably say it's by design or "not supported".
I say it's a bug because the sphere should follow the path where it is located obviously, not where it is not located.
