@Gudmundur I have found the issue and created a PR for a fix to be coming in 1.2.1 default and also 1.3.0-rc.2. I also added an on-device test to ensure this does not regress in the future! https://github.com/particle-iot/device-os/pull/1841
Here are some compiled binaries of that PR for Electron as a patched 1.3.0-rc.1 build that you may test. Happy to hear your results if you have time to test. Thanks!
