Toolpaths randomly don't generate

Finally caught this one. Maybe 5-10% of the time I've experienced this.


So in the video I double clicked on the toolpath, and then change the max stay down distance. I then hit the "enter" key to generate the toolpath. But the tool doesn't generate and instead instantly throws a warning that it's out of date. I can regenerate the toolpath right after and it will generate.


What's weird is the tooltip that shows the warning is different from what I get what's shown in the error/warning dialogue box; The tooltip says the toolpath is out of date but the dialogue says that it generated successfully lol, it's invalid (It's valid the next time I generate it 2 seconds later without changing anything), and that the mesh generation failed.


EDIT: PM me for link to video.

As shown in the video the stock for the previous toolpaths have all been generated.
