Scripting bug for ball

Before the maintenance update when you scripted held items (weapons, flags, balls) to despawn if a player was holding it the item would despawn out of the players hands, this seems to only work with flags now after the latest update. I have not seen anything on this so I thought it would be a good idea to bring up this issue.
I hope 343 fixes it soon and scripting can once again remove balls and weapons from a player when carryed.
