Time Signatures Out-of-sync

Hello! I'd like to start by thanking you all for including a time signature option in the laatest major version -- it's a long-needed improvement. That said, I'm having a few problems with it.

It seems the DAW has some internal way of keeping track of pulse, and while my metronome does happily conform through changing meters, I've noticed that at times a few pieces can get out-of-sync. Here are my reproduction instructions:

1. Create a new project and create a time signature marker at the beginning of measure 1 in 4/4 time.
2. A few bars in, add a time signature change to 7/8 for one bar, followed by one measure of 3/4, and then one measure of 5/4.
3. At some point after the bar of 7/8, in most cases, subsequent time markers will be one eighth note shifted earlier on the timeline than where they should be placed.

This is annoying, but the problem actually extends further -- plugins which play patterns based on the pulse from the DAW actually get out-of-sync past that point in the track. For instance, my instance of RealGuitar, which is given block chords in the piano roll and set to a strum pattern, will begin every pattern an eighth note late after that point in the track, though in pattern mode it will continue to start playing back correctly on beat one.

I'm including a GIF of the problem with the timeline. I'm happy to also include a video including audio of the pattern problem upon request.
