After doing a bit of digging I was able to find that this is a known issue (UE-16673) that has been submitted to the developers for further consideration. I will be sure to bump up the community interest for this issue. I have also provided a link to the original thread. You can use that link for future updates on this issue. Thank you for you time and information.
