Clustermaps not loading properly using a base search


In a dashboard, a single panel using a lookup and geostats works fine.  When I take that search and split it up to use a base search with multiple panels it semi-breaks.  The Cluster map will start loading but the pie charts appear then disappear.  The other panels on the dashboard are pie charts and they all load appropriately. Once the search completes however, if you click refresh the cluster map results will display properly.  Is this a problem with my source, the SPL, or something else (bug)? Source below is just the Panel for the Cluster map I am having problems with.


<label>Firewall Clustermap</label>

This will be no help to you unfortunately, but I have seen similar behaviour I believe on a Splunk 7.X environment, but never found the cause. What version are you on?
