Caused by rBb9febb54a492: Geometry Nodes: Support modifier on curve objects

Short description of error
Beveled curves disappear as hair particles.
As long as curves don't have any bevel applied, they show up as objects or collections in a hair particle system.
As soon as you apply any sort of bevel, they disappear.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Create curve
  • Create hair particle system and select that curve as render object
  • Edit bevel of curve

or

  • Open .blend file
  • Change bevel depth (hair particles will disappear)

Thanks for the report. Unfortunately this is a known issue in Blender 3.0. The particle system is end of life, so we're planning to focus on replacing it rather than hacking a fix together that might break other areas anyway.
