Not a bug. Pipe smash does not go on cooldown if interrupted. Wait for him to actually get his pipe out before stunning him with the magnet. He'll pull the pipe out at 80-60-40-20 unless your DPS is behind. At which point it becomes a timed event.

Point: Let him get the pipe out then stun him, not before.

It happened to quite a few people in the raid over our various attempts, though it was only fatal ~50% of the time.
Server lag is strange as far as movement goes. To force the server to update your position in time jump out of the circle if you are clearing but the server disagrees.

That set of adds is the only set that does not follow the timer I outlined earlier. They will either spawn way late if your DPS is terrible, or spawn upon the boss jumping up to do his beams. You can not avoid these adds.

As far as finding him on your minimap, all the adds are melee, they run towards you, they also spawn in the middle of the room. Have your minimap zoomed out so you can see the entire room on your minimap. Zero lands in the end of the hallway, he's easily identified as he is the only dot that does this. And as i said earlier, commit to a hallway when he jumps up. The only thing your raid should be listening for when they burn the adds is a single word of "Move", or "Stay". No babble, no guessing.
