[O] org-depend: TRIGGER XYZ(KEYWORD) not working

I am playing around with org-depend[1] again[2].

I noticed that certain TRIGGER events do not get executed.

> # -*- mode: org; coding: utf-8; -*-
> * heading 1
> :ID:       foo
> :TRIGGER: bar(NEXT) baz(NEXT)
> :END:
> * Heading 2
> :ID:       bar
> :END:
> * Heading 3
> :ID:      baz
> :END:

First observation:

When I set the heading 1 to DONE (without assigning it any other
keyword), the TRIGGER events are ignored totally.  I guess this is
an edge-case that may be considered as a bug.

Second observation:

However, what is bugging me even more is that even when "heading 1"
has a TODO keyword assigned, in *some* cases, the TRIGGER event does
not get executed when I do it in my large Org-mode file.

Copying the corresponding headings (the one with the TRIGGER prop
and the headings containing the "target" IDs) from my real-world
Org-mode file to my small test.org from above and marking the
heading that contains the TRIGGER properties to DONE, it then works
as expected. 

I then took the simple example from above, added a TODO keyword to
the heading 1, copied it to my real-world Org-mode file and even
this did not work: Heading 2 and 3 don't get their "NEXT" keyword

So the behavior changes within different Org-file contexts.
Therefore, I do have an issue creating a minimal example to
demonstrate the bug.

Can somebody give me an advice how to debug this behavior?
