IPS "Clear Staging" does not change Indicator

When IPS getting updates, those are placed in a "Staging" mode, indicated by the yellow "Detect" icon with superimposed blue clock face.

Right click allows you to perform "Clear Staging" action, that supposed to take effect after the "Threat Prevention Policy" is installed:

However, there is no change in the icon that signifies that the particular protection was cleared. There is only an increment of the unpublished changes:

 

Should the changes be published, the counter is zeroed-out, but the protection icon remains the same.

 

Furthermore, even after "Clear Staging" action on protection is performed, it is still remains as an active option in the right-click menu for the same protection. This makes it impossible to discern what protections were cleared from staging until after policy installation:

 

Will this be fixed in R80.20 or is there any other way to discern which protections were cleared and what will be the resultant action on them once they have been cleared?

 

Thank you,

Vladimir
