Transition gets cancelled when lights turn on

I’ve had a major problem with my lights transition periods for the past couple of weeks. If a light is turned on during the transition, brightness and color are fixed to the current value. I’m using long transition times (> 1 h) to change the color and brightness of my lights at the sunrise/sunset so this is a quite annoying issue. Currently, I need to manually adjust the settings multiple times a day.

I’m using LIFX HTTP API to send the transition commands. I haven’t done any changes to my automation which could cause this. I have several friends using LIFX and they also report this same behavior. It started somewhere in June.

I would really appreciate if you could fix this and revert the old behavior which worked perfectly for years.
