Theme Preview/Customizer Doesn't Work With Child Themes

Just tried making a child theme for the first time. It seems to work on the front end, but the Customizer always loads the wrong style sheet for some reason.

Tested on 3.4.2 and 3.5.

This has been tested with child themes for months without problems. I imagine you are doing something fairly weird in your child theme.

Possible. I followed the instructions at http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

I added a new dir with a copy of the style.css only, changed the theme name, gave it a different background image URL, and added the Template header pointing to the parent theme dir. Everything appears to work as expected but the Customizer.

There may be a bug here, but my description of it was not accurate. I'll make a different ticket if I can better articulate the problem.
