2D Path Event Enabled Plugin Not Working Properly


I have a 2D Path Object that has been in use for years and has worked perfectly.   It is a 2D Path Plugin Object with extended properties.  It is event enabled and allows it to respond to surface operations (add/Intersect/clip surface) which has worked exactly as we wanted it to in Vectorworks 2017 and before. It is based on example 7  in http://www.vectorlab.info/index.php?title=Events (which the Vectorscript Function Reference links to for event enabled objects)


Now in Vectorworks 2019, it does not respond properly to add/intersect/clip surfaces (or even just moving the object).  It may work properly the first time, but then any operation you try to do after than looks at the original geometry of the 2D Path and not the new geometry or location of the object.  The only way to reset it to the new path that you created is by double clicking into the object so that the vertex control points show up for editing.  After that the geometery is reset.


The bug is present if you just copy and paste example 7 into a plugin and make the plugin event enabled.  

This is a critical bug for us and would like to get it resolved (or at least a workaround).
