Hi, Mike

Thanks for your reply.

So you mean this issue is still existing on you box and you can see it
without doing any special things?

I just want to try to reproduce it but it's impossible for me to get
some hardware as yours...

So is there any idea on how to reproduce it on normal hardware?
