hello jani,

so what is your question??
what kind of hardware are you running on? have you considered, that
perhaps this is supposed to happen the way your machine is set up?

as you are aware that you are using an experimental feature, did you
investigate where this is coming from? did you have a look a, e.g.,
the +devices flag? grep through the source code? there is a few
obvious candidates... ;-)
