Blog post categories lost on saving meta and social

Whenever I save details on the meta and social tab of a blog post, the categories set for that post are lost from the site - specifically when called by perch_blog_categories(). When I return to the post edit page the right checkboxes are still checked, but the post needs to be saved again for the categories to show up again.

Looks like this was flagged last year:

Is there a fix for this in the pipeline? Many thanks.

This is my categpry_link.html template called by perch_blog_categories() :

<ul class="inline-list">
</perch:before>     <li><a href="/blog/category/<perch:category id="catSlug" />/"><perch:category id="catTitle" /> (<perch:category id="" when-empty="0" />)</a></li>

And the diagnostics:
