Companion approval bugged

At first I thought it was a one time only thing, but then I paid closer attention and found that the ratings don't increase/decrease correctly.

For instance, before talking to a quest-giver, I check my companion's approval rating, and through certain dialogue choices, said rating (during the conversation) supposedly increased, but after the cutscene was over, I check the crew window, and the rating was completely unchanged. The threshold for approval drops however, seems to be lower, i.e. 4 companion appeasing dialogue options cause a gain, whereas only 2 negative dialogue options cause a loss.

Also, I don't know if this is intended or not, but it does seem rather exploitative whereby resetting a quest doesn't actually reset your dark/light side gains, or your companion approval rating gains/losses. In essence, a person with enough patience, could just endless reset quests (assuming there's no limit), in order to attain higher levels of dark/light and/or companion rating.
