Messing around with a Paladin deck and noticed a "bug" when you combo wild pyromancer + equality on minions who are under the effects of stormwind champion. Apparently the equality hits and every minions health becomes one and then they all take 1 damage from the pyromancer; but when the stormwind champion dies, it resets the health of the other minions under his effect so they don't die but survive with one HP.

Working as intended?

Pretty much. Happened to me against a warlock deck as well.

Yeah it is working as intended. Stormwind Champion's buff is a continuous effect instead of a one-off battlecry, so when equality sets every minions health to 1 SW Champ buffs them with +1 health before the pyromancer triggers. Same can happen with murlocs, as Murloc Warleader has a continuous buff too.

I tried using humility on a lightspawn, same problem, doesn't change. I think that is intended.

Two things to bare in mind here:
1) Temporary health is always lost before permanent health.
2) Continuous effects trump one-off effects - that is they are still applicable over a one-off effect.

So the minions are reduced to 1 health, but still have the temporary +1 buff from the Stormwind Champion, because this is a continuous effect, and so have 2 health. Wild pyromancer goes off, everyone takes 1 damage, the buffed minions lose the temporary health point. Stormwind Champion dies, and the temporary health is lost. The other minions still have their own health point left.

Same with Lightspawn. Its ability is a continuous effect and so applies on top of the one-off effect from Humility, effectively rendering Humility useless against it.

Yup, all working as intended I'm afraid!
