On Sailfish X / xperia X

  1. get an Whatsapp voicecall
  2. answer or don't answer it
  3. end the call in case you answered
  4. Whatsapp and any other Android app has crashed and can't be restarted until Android support has been restarted from settings

Additionally WA voicecall doesn't trigger the answer screen, the screen stays off, only the call alarm is audible.

I tagged the current Hossa version, but I was just waiting for it to see if was fixed. I.e., it was already broken on version from Christmas at least.

I have a very similar behavior except that WhatsApp crashes upon call end and it doesn't seem to affect other Android Apps. Killing WhatsApp processes from the terminal and restarting WhatsApp makes it work again.
