Endermen will not teleport when fighting mobs other than a player. They will teleport, however, if they are attacked by a Wither from a distance, but only to reach the Wither.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a new Creative world.
2. Create an Iron Golem.
3. Spawn an Enderman near the Golem (make sure it's night).
4. Notice how the Enderman will never use its teleportation ability against the Golem.

Is this still a concern in the latest Minecraft version 14w05b? If so, please update the affected versions in order to best aid Mojang ensuring bugs are still valid in the latest releases/pre-releases.

They now teleport once in a while when fighting other mobs.
