Today's hotfix to crit PoH

Priest
'For Discipline Priests with Divine Aegis, Prayer of Healing criticals should now heal for the correct amount.'

This is pretty embarrassing and it shows how much I pay attention to the amount healed by my spells, but what did the hotfix do exactly? Does anyone know if crit PoH was healing for more or less than it should?
I didn't notice anything unusual with PoH during raid or when looking at logs. However, it's possible I wasn't raiding when it was bugged - we had a really short week last reset as several people were away at PAX East.
It was healing for slightly less than a non-crit (excluding DA obviously), at least from my personal experience.

This isn't the biggest sample, but from my last Iron Qon kill I cast PoH 98 times and it crit 36% of the time.

Average PoH (non-crit): 32893.5
Average PoH Crit: 30689.8
Average heal size on WoL only counts effective healing.
Just read on mmo forums, someone was talking about how they figured it was a PoM fix, not PoH. Looking through logs, I think they may be right as it looks like PoM was changed to no longer receive the double heal on crit.

Ah, I'm a noob at looking at WoL.

This makes a lot more sense.
Yup, makes a lot more sense. Thanks!
They did remove the double-sized critting of PoM (which was pretty fun while it lasted).

However, it still isn't functioning correctly - it doesn't count the effect of the metagem on crits; crits are the same size as normal heals instead of 3% larger.
I'll take having slightly smaller PoM crits for the current size of PoM right now. ;) Here's hoping it never gets fixed or I'll be a sad panda.
Shh, we don't talk about that anymore.
