How exactly is syncing of text styles and colors working in Craft's library plugin

It is really hard to find out how the syncing in Craft's library is supposed to work.
Syncing symbols is working as one would expect. You push your change back to the library, the library gets updated and in the connected documents all symbols also get updated.
When it comes to colors and text styles, the pushed changes get updated in the library, but these changes are not reflected in the connected documents. If this is the way it is supposed to work, its almost useless for collaboration. 
If not, what am I doing wrong?
I realized since the latest versions of Sketch (4.9 - 4.9.1) the "Generate Styles" in the "Document" tap is not working properly anymore. It's only generating one broken text style and skips the rest.
Is anybody experiencing similar problems?
Do I have to generate a style page to sync properly text styles and colors?
Here are some screenshots to illustrate my problems with the styleguide:
This is what I have before generating the the styles.
This is what I get with Sketch 4.82
and this is Sketch 4.91

I'm having the same problem with generating Text Styles using the Craft plugin.

Colours and Fonts are being compiled into the Styles page, but I'm left with a buggy looking Text Style Artboard.

Edit: Sketch (49.1) and Craft (1.0.55) are up to date.

Having the same issue, especially with Text Styles. Only outputs one type of Text style and forgets the rest.

Our apologies for the trouble with Text Styles not populating correctly in Craft Library. Our engineers identified the source of the issue and we released a fix in version 1.0.77 of the Craft Library plugin. We have tested this, and everything’s working correctly once more.

Please update your plugins and restart Sketch. Then, give this another try and let us know if you’re still having trouble. Otherwise, thanks for your patience while we worked to fix this issue.
