@Chawoosh what is the output of `uname -r`?
Comment by loqs (loqs) - Tuesday, 22 December 2020, 19:38 GMT
No response from Chawoosh in 90 days. Has anyone been able to reproduce Chawoosh's report using 5.8.9.arch2-1 or later?
If not could this be closed as fixed in 5.8.9.arch2-1?

This has been fixed, I can no longer reproduce the issue after experiencing it.
