loadReferenceDepth behaviour in Maya 2015

The command file -open -loadReferenceDepth “none” allows you to open your scene without any references loaded, it is very useful for debugging or just opening a scene faster and loading only what you need to for you to work.

But if you have opened your file with this command, there is a new behaviour in Maya 2015 regarding the loading of nested references after the initial loading of the scene.

Sounds like a bug to me, but who knows?
