We did test it. But it's hard to reproduce it. We hit it the issue
for a couple of times when running MTBF testing on Android smart phone.
Mostly, it happens after MTBF runs for more than 12 hours. To releasing
the product, MTBF testing should run for hundreds of hours. This bug
blocks it.

We would submit it formally and also run more testing.

Sorry for taking you too much time.
