More disavow tool mystery.  Personally I feel Google have been less than honest from the outset in their public pronouncements about this tool.

CC +Jim Munro might be interesting for your hangout.

    But you already have answered your own question +Cyrus Shepard ;

    Google has stated (or rather JM in webmaster hangouts) that the disavow will get processed (if algorithmic penalty) when the algo runs .

    This is what exactly happened in you case (as you point out) - the disavow file took effect after the May Penguin roll out.

    The reverse applies, with the removal of the file - you will need to wait until the next penguin roll out for the removal of disavow file to be processed.

    If a manual penalty - they will process disavow with submission of Recon
    If algo penatly - they will process disavow when algo re runs.

    So if you are going to have a penatly applied ..... Pray for a Manual one :) It is far easier to recover the site
