Speed exploit - musket 10% speed boost can be triggered for far longer than designed

This is an exploit that allows one to have the 10% speed boost for as long as you want from the musket passive perk that gives 10% speed boost when enemies are within 8 meters. If you run alongside an enemy or animal for long enough, my tests indicate 2-4 seconds is enough, the 10% speed boost triggers and stays active until you put the musket away or swap weapons. Therefore you can have the 10% speed boost as long as you’d like.
