The rooting is not a bug; it's a change new in 1.2. People used to drag that boss all the way back to the turrets at the previous boss (the giant rakghoul) and burn him there without having to deal with the adds. Leashing him to prevent such cheese makes sense, but rooting him permanently is just really stiff. The flashpoint group I run with is full Rakata + Black Hole, breezing through nightmare mode ops, and even we don't feel like we could down this boss. At his difficulty level, he should seriously drop a piece of Rakata gear. I'm all about hard content (e.g. I love Lost Island), but this particular boss is really badly tuned and has always been.

My advice would be to just skip him. It's not worth it.
