Magery Pets Buffed

So, it appears that something recently has changed with the behavior of base Magery pets. When a Magery pet is ordered to attack something and kills it, and then returns to you on it's own (without having to be ordered to Follow), the Magery pet will frequently cast buff spells like Bless/Strength/Agility/Cunning on itself even while out of combat, keeping itself self buffed. Magery Mastery and Necromage pets do not exhibit this behavior (maybe due to them stupidly casting Bless on their opponent rather than themself). However, this behavior does seem to consistently drain Mana from the pet over time, like it's stuck in combat trying to cast or something.
For a Tamer without Eval skill (like my Disco/Tamer), this is actually a pretty good buff for base Magery pets (like my Shadow Wyrm, who i've been using to crush Vorpal Rabbits with his 1,100+ STR while Blessed). I'd like to see this consistent self-buffing behavior extended to Magery Mastery/Necromage pets, and the many bugs with those abilities fixed.
