Sleep dart changed behavior - nerf or bug?

I play my operative hard for a day, then don't touch it for a day or two, so I can't put my finger on when this change happened, but tonight I am trying to quest on operative, and sleep dart puts me on the mobs' threat tables.

 

 

Prior to today, I used to run around sleeping mobs safe in the knowledge that they wouldn't come and chase me down, which made for a really fun stealth game. Now I can't, because when I sleep one mob, the previously slept mob comes for me with a vengeance.

 

Is this intended, or is it a bug? It really breaks the ability to play the game leveling as a stealth type character, which is what I loved most about it :(

If you put a skill point in the ability that causes your Sleep Dart to also reduce the damage of an enemy when it breaks, it will behave in this way.

Worked it out!

 

I am leveling as hybrid lethality/heals spec, and just took my first point in -damage on sleep bolt wearing. I assume that because that comes in the form of a debuff, the application of said debuff causes aggro.

 

 

Very annoying, because the talent has major potential. Not very useful though if it breaks the ability.
