I made a physical adept and stuck .9 essence worth of 'ware into her. Her max magic attribute was reduce correctly, but her current magic attribute stayed at 4.
I'm afraid I can't duplicate this. I chose the Adept heritage for a blank character, set magic to 4, then added an augmentation (Ultrasound Sensor was the first one my mouse hit) - the Magic attribute is being displayed as 3, and the calculations I see in the mouseover are "Starting Value 4, Essence Reductions -0.3 (-1)", with attribute limits of 1/5(7).
