With time it seems the issue sort of wore off (however my last upgrade dates
from the beginning of the soft freeze or so).
Devices are still sometime forgotten but not a big issue.
Beside that I now have A2DP without interruption or latency which is great.
The connection is much more stable now and is resilient to signal degradation.
If I move away from the computer with my headset, until the signal is
degraded, and then come back, there is no loss of synchronization (I tried
only once). And the distance beyond which the signal is becoming too weak, was
previously 2 meters or less, and is now more like 5 meters or more.
