    Glad this is being worked on. I actually discovered this bug when I was down-casting AsyncOperationHandle<T> to AsyncOperationHandle for incapsulation purposes. Recently it's been revealed that DownloadDependenciesAsync also down-casts AsyncOperationHandle in the same way and so suffers from this.

    Having the same issue here. I am sorry, but this should be really embarassing for the addressables team.

    I'm having this issue - amazed that it's been around for over a year. I'm reasonably new to Addressables and it scares me that a basic feature like this is broken in a library our game is going to depend upon quite heavily.

    Almost 1 year after this bug was discovered, it is still not fixed. It does not affect a rare feature, it affects the most common operation in the Addressable assets library.

    Its a clear bug. There should be no need to vote for it.
