Different casting times

Mage
Few days ago I noticed this weird bug I got with talent specs, for some reason I got 0,1 sec faster casting time in spells when using secondary talent spec compared to primary talent spec.
Same gear, same amount of haste, almost same talents (shouldn't be any talents that would reduce casting time on secondary spec) and almost same glyphs

Pics to prove this
Primary Talents: http://img255.imageshack.us/i/wowscrnshot121610191947.jpg/ 2,21 casting time on Fireball
Secondary Talents: http://img251.imageshack.us/i/wowscrnshot121610192027.jpg/ 2,11 casting time on Fireball

Anyone else with same kind of problem?
Did you take the screenshot whit more then one target taking fire damage? Because the only haste talent that differs the 2 specs is the point in Pytomaniac(never played horde so I don’t know if there is a dummy behind the menus)

Sorry if it’s a stupid proposition but it’s the only thing I can come up with.
Nope I wasn't attacking anything.
Sorry about bumbing this thread but has anyone else tried with speccing both trees to fire and seen any difference?

I still got 0,1 sec difference at casting times even after respeccing and it really does affect to dps in heroics
Sorry for a bump but I still got got a 0,1/0,11 difference on my specs.
This is just soo stupid in a secondary spec (pvp) I got a 2,12 casting time on fireball while I got 2.23 casting time on primary spec (pve). same gear. almost same spec and same gear..
This is indeed most odd. Maybe improved counterspell gives you some passive haste?

I still think its the point in Pytomaniac, if you take 2,23/2,12=1,05 a 5% difference and thats just what the tool tip tells you a 5% hast increases. So it might be a bug giving you this "buff" al the time or you have 3 or more targets taking fire damage when taking the screen-shot (witch you earlier said you did not have).

If that's the case then someone need to upgrade the tool-tip(and i need to get 2/2 in it :) ). CS has nothing to do with haste

Did try it and the result: Primary 2,38 and secondary 2,27.

Then i tried to same talents - the points in CS just to be sure the rogue did not have the solution al along. But she didn't ;)

So in some strange way the secondary spec gives you a shorter casting time or we are both missing something. But its still the 5% difference so I still believe its the Pytomaniac point is buged but only in the secondary tree it seems.


Edit:
Ok it MUST be a bug of the Pytomaniac talent becuse if i get exactly the same talents in my secondary tree then its the same casting time, but if i drop one point in Pytomaniac and only get 1/2 then the casting time drops to 2,27
Made a post in the bug report thread so hopefully we will get an answer. But a quick search on google gave shows me that we are not the first ones to find it :)
