I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our release – 24.0.2 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.

Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

The only workaround I can find, is to "expand" the Live Paint and then you can use the Direct Selection Tool to select the area and then with the gradient tool, adjust the gradient. NOT IDEAL. I've found that it works well with simple shapes, but doesn't always work with complicated ones. PLEASE FIX THIS ADOBE.
