Another unbelievable Android 5 (Lollipoop?) bug

After hours and hours of debugging and searching web for issues, we discovered this unbelievable Android 5 bug:

This leads the shortcut feature of My Volume to an anomaly only detectable after the reboot of the device.

Again and again and again Google is introducing absurd undocumented behaviors into its latest os version (see how many angry users are there about Lollipop audio and volumes issues). And again developers must spend (and waste!!!) their time to find solutions and to support users (that often do not understand who's to blame) instead of focusing in implementing new useful features.

Of course we will publish a new release of My Volume after fixing this new Lollipop bug.
