[5.2.1p4] Image not blocking click?

    I just upgraded to Unity 5.2.1p4 and I am having some issues with the UI.

    My parent object has an image, a button and its child object has an image. When I click on the child object, it doesn't block the Raycast and the parent button (behind it) gets the click. I thought Images are supposed to block Raycasts. I even tried using a Canvas Group and setting its "Block Raycasts" to true, with no success.

    The only way I found to prevent the raycast propagation was adding an empty, non-interactable button to the child object, which I think is too much.

    Things I tried:
    • Adding a Canvas Group and setting "Block Raycasts" to false. Didn't help.
    • Setting "Raycast target" to false on both objects. Didn't help.

    Am I missing something or did something change on the last updates? Is that a bug?

    There is an example project (about 30Kb): Clicking on the black square triggers the white button.

    The only thing that helps is adding either an empty Button or a Selectable component to the child object. But shouldn't images block clicks by default, even if they are empty? Isn't it what of all these links is about?
