Default [Q] Restrict background data blocking foreground data

Couldn't seem to find and threads on this problem, so I'm hoping someone might know what's going on here. When I enable Restrict Background Data on my Galaxy S5, it completely disables all foreground data too. I'm currently using Project Infinity ROM but I tried reinstalling the stock ROM and a couple other custom ROMs with the same result. Does anyone know what might be causing this or how I could possibly fix it?

The setting should stop all data usage except for the app that has focus i.e. the app you are currently using. And it appears to work for me. Are you telling us that toggling the setting blocks data to the app currently on screen and in use?
