if i apply temp damage to an ability score, the bonus properly adjusts(ex. i apply 1 damage to an 18 dex, the modifier goes to +3). however, the rolls that use the dex modifier don't adjust to the new modifier value(AC, Init...). if my Initiative is +4(18 dex), it won't adjust down to +3 based on damage applied, i have to manually adjust them. anyone else?

At least in PF you need 2 damage to an ability for it do get a -1 penalty to the rolls.

For every 2 points of damage you take to a single ability, apply a –1 penalty to skills and statistics listed with the relevant ability.

Basically, the recommendation is to use an effect for ability damage.
