UI freezes during network connection problems

I cannot understand, why trying to reconnect to network should be such a cpu intensive task, even if Jolla was single-core, which it isn't!

So why does the UI becomes stuck so often when network stability becomes an issue?

Can Jolla please fix this, nice network tasks or whatever!

I haven't noticed this with jolla, but I assume it's quite intensive task, because even my iphone used to completely lag while connecting to network (mobile, not wifi, of course)

I think this is a known issue and is already addressed by these 2 questions: https://together.jolla.com/question/12089/problem-with-connection-message-clogged-up-the-phone/ and https://together.jolla.com/question/6113/lots-of-connection-errors-while-on-wlanwifi/ So please vote and comment there.

@koudi just because several phones have this bug, doesn't make it a feature, there's nothing inherently intensive about a network connection, it's just a few packets going back and forth. The fact that is has become cpu intensive is a bug, caused by software cruft around the network connection!

@zlatko, it's not a duplicate of that question, because this happens whenever there's a network fluctuation. At the most, the question you mentioned is a particular instance of the problem I'm referring to, but what I'm talking about is a more encompassing problem, not only when the connection dialog appears.
