Just did a 4 man Infected (leaver and nobody took his place) and we got to Donatra after a looooong time.

Anyways it literally took 10 mins for 4 Escorts (1 MVAE, 1 Tac Escort, 1 Heavy and 1 AE) to take down Donatra. We couldn't peel his shields for the life of us and he kept on cloaking every 5 seconds for between 10 and 30 seconds.

Yea, the STFs can bug out once in a while. Causing the boss to take forever to spawn and do some really stupid things. I've been in a cure stf where the carrier NEVER spawned before.

is that you can't properly teabag your defeated opponent

First, Donatra is a woman, and it is typical for her tactics to be almost random, in my carrier i can usually, with a team of decent dps-ing cruisers and escorts, in around 3-4 minutes due to sci abilities. Don't worry if it takes you a while to kill her, and not all escorts do a lot of damage, in my time i've seen escorts that do so little damage they couldn't kill a borg probe. Just be thankful it isn't a timed fight. And apparently if you stay far enough away she won't cloak, though i doubt that theory.

The answer is Yes, the encounter is broken, the mob in question is respawning incorrectly.

Yeah, she's recloaking in about half the time and isn't doing her charge attack as routinely. I don't know whether it's bugged or intentional, but it can be pretty annoying in a low DPS group.

If you have one person steadily hold her attention, and have this person stay 7-8km or more away from her 100% of the time, she almost never cloaks. In one instance, we actually blew her straight to wherever dead Romulans go, without her ever having cloaked.

That's not her only problem.

In my encounters I've seen:
Instant Thalaron Blast with no chage-up after decloak
Photon Torp Spread that did MASSIVE Damage (Oneshot my Tank Cruiser, it was at full Shields and Hull)
Tractor Probe Spam (there was almost 20 of the darn things at one point)

Most of the people i've played KA with have made the assumption that these were all intentional to make the KA boss fight actually hard, as i remember being able to tank against her in my escort. Then they made her insta-shot, and the photon torpedo spread may be a bug, but it was a romulan ship at one point and i think they used a few photon torpedoes at one point or another. The tractor probes can be taken out by a beam boat with fire at will on. So all in all, it may be intentional, or it may be a bug, but it isn't game changing. I'd rather they fix my carrier UI than fix a boos that can't kill me anyway.

The Tractor Probes can be taken out with a Cannon with Rapid Fire / Scatter Volley very easily.
