Not at all! What's happening now with The Barber is most certainly another bug, which was introduced with the latest PTR patch. Unfortunately, due to the holiday weekend, we won't be able to finalize a fix until next week.
Rest assured this is most certainly a known issue and we're in the process of investigating it. As soon as we're back in the office and have an update for you, I'll be back to fill you all in.

We just issued a hotfix to the PTR to address the issue with The Barber. The item should now be functioning as intended. You may need to log out and back into the PTR for the hotfix to take effect. Please give it a whirl or two and let us know how your new tests go!
Thanks for your patience!
# 96 Dec 3, 2016We do have some changes coming up for The Barber, the full post is in the Focused Feedback thread.12/02/2016 03:05 PMPosted by NevalistisThe Barber
Those of you who have been testing The Barber have seen this item jump from flat out not-functioning to most certainly over-performing. We suspect that the damage on this item is a tad high (particularly when using the Phantasm rune), so we're removing the damage bonus granted by the final explosion. There were also some pretty funky interactions occurring with Phantasm that caused some scaling issues, and we'll be correcting those.
TLDR: Witch Doctors looking for massive AoE explosions from Spirit Barrage should still see effective results, but they won't be quite so over the top.
