Our users have noticed that when you open a defect from say a test run or instance, and save out, the link for linked entities screen does not show. Only way we have seen it “appear” is if we do a refresh from the defects main module. A refresh in the actual defect details or the test run details do not make the linkage appear. This is for ALM 11.52.

This is an already reported to HP issue, as of this month in fact.
The QCCR can be found here: QCCR1J89091
It does have a deferred status for 11.52 and HP reported it as a low priority. Will likely have to stick to the workaround you found for the refresh from the main defect module for the moment.
