Did it ever worked differently?  I mean, if you copy-face some face
into mode-line face in Emacs 21.1, does the mode line change

I think faces are recomputed only on certain occasions, and otherwise
cached and delivered from the cache.

I think this is expected: faces are frame-specific.  If you want the
change on all frames, use set-face-attribute.
