Interestingly, those descriptions sound exactly like this bug I'd reported against the Linux engine some time ago:

That was one fixed several versions ago, and I just confirmed that indeed it still works well in v8.1 on Ubuntu 14.04.

@Jim, Richmond: When either of you files the bug report for this, you may want to mention #14416 as the fix may be related to the they'd done earlier.

I'd consider re-opening the old report, but since their fix is still working well for me that specific issue has not regressed per se. But probably worth mentioning just in case the issue you're seeing is indeed related under the hood.
