You’re welcome.

The combination of polling (by OS-X) and the added burden of new registrants is usually enough to trigger the issue quickly. Not sure if there’s an easier way that distills it to the bare minimum set of conditions necessary for its manifestation.

It would be helpful if you could provide a test case in addition to the one via which I was unable to reproduce the problem. That would greatly increase the odds of this being fixed sooner rather than later. Ideally the test case would be part of a new issue report.

I’ll see what comes up.
