BTW you mentioned some issues with the WiFi and I'm certainly seeing very lumpy packet reception (even simple ping test are asymmetric with pings from the PBP working normally but pings to he PBP can take up to 1500ms to reply). Is that the same issue you were worried about? For me that definitely comes and goes with dynamic changes to WiFi power management.

No. Unfortunately it is a crash of the firmware in the ap6255 wifi module. However, I've found another firmware binary in my firmware collection that seems to work a lot more stable. Haven't seen it crash in the past 5 hours or so. I'll keep it running over night  and see if it is indeed stable.

Regarding your experience I'd guess on aggressive power saving, too. I see the same behaviour with most modern smartphones and there I know for a fact that it is power management.
