Short description of error
Particles not generated on Plane object
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Open the attached blend file and hit Bake, you should see that particles don't get generated.
When you rotate Plane object either around X or Y axis a bit(or in Edit mode) and rebake, particles get generated. Rotating around only Z axis doesn't fix the problem.
Seems like if plane's dimension in one of the axis is 0 it doesn't work.
