Bluetooth car connection sticks on "phone" until call is made

Hi all, I have regularly used my Jolla 1 with my Bluetooth car kit since I got the phone a couple of years ago. The car kit is a Nokia CK-7W, and it worked perfectly until 3 software updates ago. Since then, whenever the phone connects to the car kit, the stereo switches to "Phone" and stays there until a call is made and cancelled. This doesn't happen with any other phone tried. Before this started, the car stereo would switch to phone mode for a second or two, just for the phone's tone to acknowledge connection, then switch back to the radio or CD. Now, when the phone connects, if I make a call (which can still be heard fine in both directions) and hang up, the kit switches back to the radio or CD as normal, and for the rest of the time they are connected, everything behaves as normal.

I didn't report it as a bug at the time, thinking that something so obvious would quickly be spotted and fixed, but maybe there aren't that many people using my particular setup - the past two updates (including have passed without fixing this issue. I had a quick search but couldn't find anyone else with the same problem, although there are other Bluetooth problems reported. Any ideas?
