Haku mission doesn't drop spirit on flicker strike

I expect the mechanics to follow the rules laid out in the wiki. Specifically:

"After you retrieve the Karui Spirit and begin to escort it out, you cannot use movement skills or leave the instance (other than by using the exit) without dropping the Karui Spirit. These skills include: Flicker Strike, Leap Slam, Whirling Blades, Lightning Warp, Shield Charge and Smoke Mine."

However, my flicker strike character can happily pick up the spirit and flicker around the map without dropping it. The spirit does drop when I use whirling blades, so there seems to be an inconsistency in the rules.

I have been able to reproduce this twice in a row now (both today), and I suspect it is not a one-time issue.

On the off chance a support gem is causing game mechanic issues, my full flicker strike gem combo is:
Melee Splash Support
Increased Critical Support
Melee Damage on Full Life Support
Flicker Strike
Culling Strike Support
Multistrike Support

Flicker Strike use to drop the spirit, but it was changed back in 2.4.0:

"Flicker Strike no longer causes you to drop Haku's spirit."

The wiki is just outdated.

Ah, thanks for the clarification.
