Also works on ship buff shrines, but you need to let it go to about 1/4th before stepping away.
Gotta wonder when Servants of the Overlord will get closed because of this.
This is why we can't have nice things...
Sorry you are having premature completion issues...
Avoid it in Tomb of the Immortal as well.

Find a way to exploit it to be beneficial to players then publicize it on the forums. This way the bug will get fixed quickly. If it only has a negative impact don't hold your breath waiting. Pessimistic, I know, but its based on years of experience. ;-p
On premature moving:
Summoning a hireling = completes bar, but summoning cancelled
Summoning arti iron defender = success
And again, looks like things cancel if you're in the initial non-idling part of the animation. If you're into the looping end of the animation it completes the bar, but not always what you were doing.
Oooh! Oooh! OOOH!
Left-Alt actually interrupted and canceled a recall, a logout and a /death. Haven't tested it on anything else yet, but there's a possible work-around if you actually want to cancel a progress bar.
I would edit your OP and remove all references to the "feature" in question as the devs are likely to consider this an exploit. This is an old bug which has resurfaced. Bug report it. I am certain they are aware of it. At some times it is convenient. At other times it is not. Personally I would prefer it be fixed.
Left-Alt also gives the interrupt message for resting, although that wasn't really completing before.
An odd side-effect of using left-alt to cancel is that you have to move before you can do the canceled action again, apparently. Interrupting a rest left me sitting on the ground and unable to use the shrine until I stood up again. Interrupting a recall made subsequent attempts to recall do nothing, not even th progress bar, until I moved.
ETA: So moving cancels the animation of a progress bar, and auto-completes the bar, with varying degrees of completing the action. While left-alt cancels the bar and the action, but leaves the animation alone for non-Artificers.
