Photoshop CC reports wrong font size via scripting API

After free transforming a text layer, Photoshop reports a (very!) incorrect and messed up font size through the scripting API. I've also seen the problem occur after simply scaling the entire PSD document, but I can't seem reproduce that consistently.

The font size shown in PS in the Character panel is correct - only the size reported to scripts is affected. Manually entering a new size in the Character panel does not "reset" the error. Only way to get the font size correct again, is to delete the layer and create a new.

This is a very serious bug for all scripts interacting with text layers.

Tested with PS CC, but I think the bug was present in CS6 too.

Did you install the Photoshop 14.1.2 update?

Yes, I'm on 14.1.2 x64 Windows7. I think it's the same on Mac.

Yes the problem has not been fixed with CC or CS6.
I have put a function to get the font size under "Snippets" @ http://www.ps-bridge-scripts.talktalk...
Hope it might help someone until this problem gets fixed on both CS6 and CC
