Ribbon particle wrong position
I'm trying to make a particle system that draws a pentagram in the sky. i managed t do so with a sprite emmiter but now i'm trying to attach a ribbon to the sprite so it's a line instead of dots. technically it works, its spawn and draws the right amount of line, but its not located where the source partcile is. Instead the line is spawned next to the source and also rotated in space.
The source particle is attached to a bone that is animated to draw, it should spawn every 3 seconds
Has anyone had this problem or know what causes it?
I'll also link my project files: Source Files

I also see this problem in 4.13.0, the latest version as of this reply.
The entire particle system is attached to a bone and the ribbon trails are attached to source particles. The instant it breaks is when the source particles are set to local space to move with the bone. When this happens, the ribbon trails get offset a short distance away. The ribbon trails look correct when the source particles do not move with the bone.
There are no offsets in the required module of the ribbon emitter. There are no orbit modules on either the source or the ribbon emitter.
Possibly already reported as UE-22714 but I'm not sure if it's the same issue since I am unwilling to jump through all the hoops necessary to find out.
