If there's something wrong with shard/seal drops in that chain, please, for the love of all that is holy, put in a detailed bug report with steps to reproduce that our Quality Assurance team can follow.
If our QA team can verify a bug, then they assign it to a developer to get fixed.
I've submitted several, one just last week when this thread started getting running.
It really is as simple to reproduce as "run on EH or EE, observe the lack of seals dropping."
