[1.0.4.20] Stability problems - findings

I didn't find other posts quite in subject. All previous updates have been pretty stable for me, except networking and e-mail syncing reliability. Typically I even didn't need reboot my phone for a whole month.

After successfully updating 1.0.4.20 following these steps my Jolla was stable first hours of usage, but went haywire after some activities:
-Become heated in pocket, and when I opened ui was normal, but setup app cover was fluctuating between normal and total pixelsh...t and short refresh sequence. Power button to shut down caused red led to blink in 3 series in quick freq. reboot helped.
-Next morning double tapping was slow to wake up UI. Settings app cover was seen among others, but failed to bring ap to full, instead 'dropped' back to minimized. Other apps could be somehow maximized but failed on network connection. Finally getting into settings failed to change network connections/flight mode states. Reboot helped.
-Whole yesterday battery consumption was at least two times higher than normally and after one phone calls and few sms exchange phone again stucked in dark glowing screen only green led blinking in quick succession.

This is probably half of the problems I actually encountered (and 5 must reboots). All seemed to me be leading to same theory - zombie process eating up resources (and battery). So after some study I tracked _possible_ cause into one source: I had forgotten re-enable openrepos after update, and when I had tried to use warehouse app, something there got hanging (couldn't update apps form there etc.) Maybe after each try zombie slowly consumed all resources. During problems 'crest' app showed some app (if remember correctly harbour-warehouse or something) eating 10% cpu.

Then I tried fix:
1) After fresh reboot issued missed command (from instructions):

for i in $(ssu lr 2>&1 | grep openre | cut -d" "  -f3); do  ssu er $i ; done

2) and then: warehouse->pull down menu->'Refresh cache' or something, my Jolla has been nice and smooth again (99->94% battery level during 8h sleep) and no stability problems. Updating apps from warehouse works fluently now also.

I don't know which one of the two was actual cause.

So if you got stability or battery problems after update, try to re-enable openrepos if you forgot to do that and referesh warehouse cache before trying to install/update apps from there. And would be nice if you comment below if this has helped your case, or if you can give more exact instructions.

[1.0.4.20] Stability problems - findings

Update. This original question is not totally valid from every points (wasn't final fix, and openrepos is not much to blame on reported issues, i think.). See updates in 'answer' I marked correct with green star below. It will get still some updates after I complete tests running throughout the weekend
