Warlock DoTs + Procs bug

Bug Report
DoTs, or Corruption in particular, do not update with the correct damage value when refreshed with a proc - it will, however, update with a Fel Flame. Here's a snippet from a log:

[20:06:54.190] Rvst casts Corruption on Raider's Training Dummy
[20:06:54.408] Rvst Corruption Raider's Training Dummy 4494
[20:06:54.552] Rvst gains Blessing of the Celestials from Rvst

[20:06:56.294] Rvst Corruption Raider's Training Dummy 4494
[20:06:56.294] Rvst casts Corruption on Raider's Training Dummy
[20:06:56.566] Raider's Training Dummy's Corruption is refreshed by Rvst
[20:06:58.082] Rvst Corruption Raider's Training Dummy 5148
[20:06:58.973] Rvst casts Corruption on Raider's Training Dummy
[20:06:59.357] Raider's Training Dummy's Corruption is refreshed by Rvst
[20:06:59.913] Rvst Corruption Raider's Training Dummy 5381
[20:07:00.982] Rvst casts Corruption on Raider's Training Dummy
[20:07:00.982] Raider's Training Dummy's Corruption is refreshed by Rvst
[20:07:01.778] Rvst Corruption Raider's Training Dummy 5464
[20:07:03.091] Rvst casts Corruption on Raider's Training Dummy
[20:07:03.380] Raider's Training Dummy's Corruption is refreshed by Rvst
[20:07:03.590] Rvst Corruption Raider's Training Dummy 5494
[20:07:05.291] Rvst casts Corruption on Raider's Training Dummy
[20:07:05.429] Raider's Training Dummy's Corruption is refreshed by Rvst
[20:07:05.429] Rvst Corruption Raider's Training Dummy 5505

In the log above, Relic of Yu'lon procs. After spam refreshing Corruption, it seems to converge to the correct damage value of 5505. Refreshing right after the proc with Fel Flame also produces the correct damage value of 5505.

It happens to a lesser degree with Agony:

[20:07:47.849] Rvst Agony Raider's Training Dummy 5260
[20:07:48.008] Rvst gains Blessing of the Celestials from Rvst

[20:07:53.350] Rvst casts Agony on Raider's Training Dummy
[20:07:53.633] Raider's Training Dummy's Agony is refreshed by Rvst

[20:07:57.037] Rvst Agony Raider's Training Dummy 7165

[11:41:51.037] Demônlock Fel Flame Raider's Training Dummy 16886
[11:41:51.662] Demônlock Corruption Raider's Training Dummy 7019
[11:41:52.981] Demônlock's Jade Spirit fades from Demônlock
[11:41:53.475] Demônlock Corruption Raider's Training Dummy 7019
[11:41:55.317] Demônlock Corruption Raider's Training Dummy 7019
[11:41:57.122] Demônlock Corruption Raider's Training Dummy 7019
[11:41:58.931] Demônlock Corruption Raider's Training Dummy 7019
[11:42:00.778] Demônlock Corruption Raider's Training Dummy 7019

base damage was 6478 with no procs
damage after the proc was 6825
damage with proc + fel flame refresh was 7019
This works in reverse as well, FYI. If you lose the buff and refresh by casting Corruption, the damage per tick will go down, but not to the correct level. It will eventually ramp down with multiple recasts, just like it ramps up. Refreshing with Fel Flame will put it at the correct damage immediately after the buff is gone.
This is important.
Creating a post stating as such doesn't change anything. It simply wastes time getting it fixed because QA now have to read a post that doesn't change anything - just like they now have to read my post explaining why your post shouldn't be there.

Also, take a look here: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/7540458
Pandemic no longer smooths the damage when extending dots with different amounts of spellpower.
why are they only changing this in 5.1! THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED NOW! I've been basing my playstyle all this time with smart proc refreshing only knowing that what ive been doing is almost a waste!
Because some fixes are not fixable with a simple hotfix. As such, they take an actual patch to fix. Hence, this is not being fixed until then.
