Bandage Self and "Using a Healing Skill" Rune Bugs

The post-skill cooldown window once an engineer player uses the Bandage Self tool belt healing skill bugs on so many Runes that activate bonuses when using a healing skill. For instance:
Rune of the Revenant - You can get the heal from Bandage Self, dodge in combat, and never receive the Resistance boon.
Rune of Adventure - You can get the heal from Bandage Self, dodge in combat, and never get your 25% endurance.
Rune of Air - Even after healing is granted to player, it fails to grant Shock Aura if one uses another skill or dodges in that hidden post-skill cooldown window
Rune of the Fighter - same thing as above, fails to grant might even after heal is granted because of hidden post heal skill cooldown.
Rune of Grenth - same.
Rune of the Centaur - same.
Rune of the Water
Rune of the Flock

Also the Cleansing Pulse and Reconstruction Enclosure Traits in Inventions line as well

    Pretty sure it only supposed to work on your healing skill aka number 6 skill on skill bar.

    Unintuitively, healing triggers proc on equipping or stowing the kit, not the actual healing skill from the tool belt.

    Actually, NO because it actually works when you use your heal skill (which, with Med Kit, IS the tool belt Bandage Self skill). It just fails to work if you happen to do anything else in that intervening time.

    Since you guys obviously do not believe me, here is me using Rune of the Fighter to prove a point.

    Using evade or other skill just after heal - https://prnt.sc/rne1if
    Without using evade or other skill just after heal - https://prnt.sc/rne13d

    NOW do you believe me?

    There is no reason to assume bad faith, you just did not specify your methods so people go by what they know. It seems Anet did fix the healing proc for medkit at some point, so that's not the issue. This is a common problem with proc effects, which are queued (another example being the delayed effects on a thief's Steal, which can have a number of effects tacked onto it via traits). Interrupting the queue of effect applications will cause them to be lost. It is probably something that they do not have the capacity to fix without an overhaul to the skill system. It is not specific to Bandage Self.
