Hello Red Hat,

It seems a similar problem was already reported against Fedora rawhide on Red Hat Bugzilla:


However, it seems this problem has been found in a different situation. Perhaps this bug here might
be useful for you describing another way to reproduce this issue.

Thanks for your support.
