We have exchanged about ths issue some months ago. When I talked about it, it seemed rather systematic but when I wanted to produce an example to send it to you I couldn't reproduce it.
This bug is crazy! This time I thought I had caught the situation in which it happens, bug again I cannot reproduce it anymore, while I had it everyday for ~ 5 days. (I was working in // on two similar apps in python and Lua.)
Tell you more when it comes back and I understand it better. Next time, I'll freeze and save the situation as soon as it comes.
