Rylai's Scepter does not seem to recognise Katarina's ult as a multi target spell at higher levels, thus applying 40% slow to all targets.

Also her character selection sound bite is mispronounced. Macabre = "mak-kahb" in the US, and "mak-kahb-ra" in the UK ... never "mak-kahb-ruh" =)

this is a problem more with rylai's scepter itself than katarina, not only does it count as a single target spell apparently, it slows people continuously throughout the duration, like Gatling gun and a few others do, however other spells like life drain do not

This is a bug and has been recognized as such. Should be fixed in the next patch.

Guessing that's because of the way the gatling gun and daggers work - the life drain probably counts as a single attack with a DoT as long as the enemy is in range (hence the linkup graphic) whereas gatling gun and daggers count as multiple attacks since you can walk both in and out of the range of them (whereas the drain is linked to specifically one enemy)

yea, that's pretty much why it works, but in terms of balance it doesn't make sense for it to work like that, if spells are going to re-apply the buff repeatably, it should be weaker than the single use spells, and other spells like life drain should also provide this repeated weaker buff

or display a warning such as sivir bouncing blades (only first hit procs etc.)

well I guess that the multi target thing works only for spells with an aoe cursor like veigar's dark matter or tristana's rocket jump,this has happened to me many times as well

This bug is totally gamebreaking and I hate people who abuses it. Needs to be fixed in next patch.

Why doesn't Rylai's have a cooldown...?

it is intended to work as the mage version of the phange / frozen mallet, no cooldown on those.
