Possible that JIRA Events are lacking?

I'm trying to update a custom field ("Field B") based on the value of another custom field ("Field A"). "Field A" can change as soon as the work starts, so "Field B" must be updated accordingly. 

My thought was to create a custom listener and hook that one up to the "Issue Created" and "Issue Updated" event, so that the listener can react on the field changes. In general the script and listener is working BUT it seems that the listener is always one event behind.

Lets say I update issues with key "TP-1" and "TP-2", the listner is only processing "TP-1", "TP-2" is only processed when I edit "TP-3" and so on and so forth.. 

Here is a simplified version of the script I'm using:

CustomFieldManager customFieldManager

def currentEvent = event as IssueEvent

def currentIssue = currentEvent.getIssue()

def idCustomFieldA = 11601L

def customFieldA = currentIssue.getCustomFieldValue(customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObject(idCustomFieldA))
