      The bug

      Due to MC-87907 being fixed, an unintended side effect has been caused where endermen will not dodge the player's melee attacks if they are aiming at somewhere other than their head. They appear to "lag" in place and attempt to teleport, but fail to do so and effectively stay int he same spot. Since the dodging is caused by "looking" at the endermen while they are aggroed while close to the player, changing the "look" area also changes the area that triggers their dodging.

      Previously they would dodge if you were attacking their torso.

      How to reproduce

      1. Spawn an endermen
      2. Punch its torso area; notice how he "attempts" to teleport (MC-101700) fails to teleport and stays in the same spot.
      3. Punch its head, it will teleport and dodge the attack.
