They are still hostile and still trying to follow you, there is a bug though that makes them swim impossibly slow.
Yeah I was messing around with it, and it seems kinda inconsistent now. Some mobs are following me, others are not... Getting really strange. Spiders seem to be really freaking out when struck by this bug, they just spin around really fast on the water.

I'll have to check this out. I haven't seen any in water yet.
I've only found this happening so far on Ocean Biomes, I was doing a survival island run on the new snapshot when I noticed that mobs just weren't attacking me when they wandered into the water. (Day or night).
Skeletons still fire at me though.
I'd like to know if this still occurs in other biomes, such as rivers, lakes and the small water pools that crop up.
Heck, even on player-made lakes would be interesting to know. Because as far as I know, this could be exploited into one heckuva mob grinder...
