Cascade behavior with selectSingleOption

This is an observation about SPCascadeDropdowns (using SharePoint/Office 365; jquery.SPServices-2014.02.min; jquery-1.11.3.min; Windows 7/IE11) with selectSingleOption: true. The use case is a three level cascade.

When switching choices at the first/top level from a choice that has multiple second/middle level options (that cascade properly to a third/bottom field, the lowest part of the cascade) to a top level choice which has a second level with a single valid cascade value, the single choice appears to be selected but does not cascade down the third level. Unfortunately I don't have the time to figure out anything other than to turn off the selectSingleOption.

The third level is a multi-select field. I didn't try restricting it to a single choice to see if that made a difference.
