Changing rate on new goal deletes extra buffer

This morning I created a new goal with extra buffer, and then realized I set the rate incorrectly, so changed it. Doing so deleted all my initial buffer, so I had to delete the goal and re-create it.

Actually, the problem appears as soon as I turn on Weekends Off, so the issue may not be changing the goal’s rate.

Also, it seems like the amount of extra buffer matters, as it kept happening with a goal where I had 5 days of extra buffer, but didn’t happen for another goal with ~30 days of extra buffer.
