Batch rendering a scene results has issues with parenting.

This is more of a bug report, but I'm trying to render a simple turn table of an object. I've set the scene up using all Pro Render lights and materials (pbr) and have a locator which rotates the number of degrees over the time that I want. I reference in an object and parent the object to the locator to inherit the turn motion. Everything works fine until I try to do a batch render either through Maya or using export to backburner. First, it only uses CPU to render, and secondly, if I have a task size of 2 frames, it will render the first frame and then the second frame. BUT when it moves to the second task of frames 3 and 4, it renders frame 1 again, and the second frame it renders is 3 (I think, its either 3 or 4). The point is, it doesnt sequentially render the frames properly. 

 

I did try parent constraining the object to the locator and that fixed the problem, but I can foresee this being an issue when I get into real production.
