You have to consider, that we are playing on different continents. EU players will send there actions much faster to the server then US players. In the time the server is sending the cast animation of a EU fireball to an US player and the reaction of the US player back to the EU fireball caster, the US player is already dead. Even with tbc like fixes.

More interesting would be a explaination for the issue, that people can see a stealthed char over a longer time and distance and how to reproduce that issue. Latency cannot be the reason here.

This should really be split into two issues.

One is vanish sometimes failing to cancel incoming swings/spells and breaking, which was common throughout vanilla. (Incidentally, on live I managed to vanish to avoid Sapphiron's frost AoE which is untargetted, so there was certainly an immunity window at that point).

The second issue is not a blizzard bug, and should be fixed if possible. While targeted, players who vanish often get spotted almost instantly, and while I have no reproduction steps for it, it seems to happen 80% of the time.

There is a third stealth issue, and this is when people remain visible after entering stealth, even fifty yards away, as if they have hunter's mark on them. This is much less common.

Now for some unqualified theorising. From what I can tell, Rebirth runs spot checks on stealthed players every 2-3 seconds, and while vanish initially removes you from everyone's spotted list, it seems that it's possible to fail the very next spot check, despite having 50 extra stealth +skill (essentially you should be stealthing like a level 70).

Possibly rebirth is not running spot checks frequently enough. (Appearing while vanished for 0.5 seconds would be much less of an issue), or possibly the spot check isn't functioning correctly at high differences in skill level.

But what about the other two issues, being visible after vanishing, and being visible while stealthed?

Well, if you check the rogue bug thread there's already report on something similiar with pretty nice demonstrative video. It's number 2
