Sergey, please spend your cycle to re-evaluate this issue, it may be an 
Apple's problem but in that case it would be "not an issue", in that 
case we need you to report it with Apple's bugID here.

Hendrik, Thanks for your input. The bug was "Resolved" as Incomplete on 
2017-09-28 by Pardeep, but unfortunately nobody came back after that 
until I closed it yesterday eventually. If some issue is Resolved as 
Incomplete it means it will be moved on some day further to Closed 
status in case there are no additional information provided in JBS or on 
mailing lists to re-open it from Resolved status.
