Android application lost folder access permission

REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): always
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > Ab product):
HARDWARE (XA2, X10, X10 II, …): Xperia 10
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): yes


  1. Barinsta or NewPipe apps from F-Droid ask for permission to access a folder.
  2. I click on the button to select the folder
  3. A popup - new window - appears to launch only to vanish immediately

I cannot (re)grant permission to access folders to these apps, while at leat Barinsta did work in the past!
