Android crash while normal usage scenario / maybe a memory management issue

REPRODUCIBILITY: ALWAYS
OS VERSION: 4.5.0.25
HARDWARE: Xperia 10 II
UI LANGUAGE: DE
REGRESSION: SOMEHOW

DESCRIPTION:

Start Android application : Wire app

Result: Complete Android runtime crash

See also: Wire 4.x crashes Android environment

PRECONDITIONS:

Wire app has messages to receive.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

  1. Install version 4 of Wire - GitHub - wireapp/wire-android: 🤖 The new Wire client for Android
  2. Send a message to your wire account
  3. Open Wire: Starting and updating message history results into a crash of the runtime

EXPECTED RESULT:

  • Application runs after starting it
  • Or at least only the application crashes.
  • but the runtime should not crash entirely

ACTUAL RESULT:

The AOSP runtime crashes entirely. Only manually restartable / it does not (re)start when trying
to open an arbitrary android app.

MODIFICATIONS:

No

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Wire app directly installed via apk

Check device memory, is your storage full in any of your partitions?

It seems that the update to SFOS 4.6 resolved this issue. A couple of times the mentioned condition didn’t triggered a crash … (JFI @rtr2001)
