Zero duration tweens at start are skipped if timeline is repeated

Just came across this odd behavior which didn't happen in gsap 2. If you click on buttons as follows, T1, T2, T1, T2 then you will notice that element's opacity just stays 0.1 and it also skips any calls at the start of timeline. The initial value does get recorded if I am resetting it somewhere in play head of timeline, uncomment line 38.


Only workaround that seem to work is setting everything in onStart, a bit inconvenient but is that intended change? Release notes don't suggest using onStart to set values for repeating tweens.

@GreenSock now it doesn't skip zero duration tweens but still skips call method.

I was going to say that's expected behavior because suppressEvents is true by default on play(), so it doesn't trigger callbacks/events, so just call t2.play(0, false) and you'll get the behavior you wanted. But I can see an argument for the call() being triggered on the very next tick, as the playhead LEAVES that position. Very tricky indeed - the zero-duration stuff is always the most complex thing to deal with timing-wise because when the playhead lands exactly on top of it there are various edge cases to accommodate (like if suppressEvents is true, there must be another render on the next tick, we must keep track of the playhead direction, etc.). I think I've got it worked out in the latest beta: https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/s.cdpn.io/16327/gsap-latest-beta.min.js
