Editing LaTex math block macro causes rest of document to disappear

I have a Confluence document with many LaTex math equations. Just now tried to edit a math block macro. When I save the macro edit, and return to the document (still in edit mode), all of the contents except the math block and the table of contents disappears. When I undo the change, the content reverts back. 

This only happens when all the contents are inside a "Numbered Headings" block. When I remove the Numbered Headings (by cut & paste into region outside the Numbered Headings block), then edit the math block, everything works normal.

Bottom line: editing LatTex math block inside Numbered Headings block has a bug.

I have to limit the extent of the screenshots because of proprietary content. First is the Numbered Headings block that contains all of the document body including LaTex Math blocks.

Next is an example Math Block. Recently I see (as shown here) that it is not rendering when in "Edit" mode. Here is a sample showing both box and inline math blocks not rendering:

Note that there are a couple of "mathblock-ref" that do successfully render, as well as one "mathblock". I don't see why some work and some don't.

When I click on the "edit" pencil icon to edit the mathblock, I do see the properly rendered equation:

Finally, if I edit the above math block (I added a comma after x_{i}) and hit save, it returns to the document, but the document has been cleared:

Notice that the "Numbered Headings" block (with all the content) has been replaced by the math block -- and the math block (with the added comma) does render. If I move everything out of the Numbered Headings block, I don't see this bug.

I hope that helps.
