Clover Station 2018 crashing on Payment intermittently and only on some devices

We have been experiencing claims since March 2021 that randomly clover 2018 devices will crash at the moment we attempt to close a payment. This also occurs in approx 1/2 of the 10 staging devices we have. We have implemented 2 things for all production merchants

1. Logging to trap a crash - we have accurate time stamps

and

2 A method to enable the payment to close again. (which is proving to be successful)

This frequency of crashes is indirectly related to the usage, but what is weird is the frequency of crashes is not common across all merchants.
The list of merchants affected since we implemented the logging is as per below.. this is expected to increase as we roll out the logging to another 200 merchants by the end of August.

This is NOT being detected/reported by about 60 merchants.. (of the 100 updated) the frequency of crashes varies from once per day to once every few hours. These merchants are running around 100 to 200 txns a day normally.

Code snippet is here.

val data = Intent().apply {
    putExtra(Intents.EXTRA_AMOUNT, amount)
    putExtra(Intents.EXTRA_CLIENT_ID, transactionId)
    putExtra(Intents.EXTRA_TAX_AMOUNT, taxAmount)
    putExtra(Intents.EXTRA_TIP_AMOUNT, tipAmount)
    putExtra(Intents.EXTRA_NOTE, "Transaction Id: $transactionId")
    putExtra(Intents.EXTRA_LINE_ITEM_PAYMENTS, lineItemPayments)
}

setResult(AppCompatActivity.RESULT_OK, data)


an example of the extras is here.

Bundle[{clover.intent.extra.CLIENT_ID=c729aaaa295e465f87392a3dd3d4fbf8, clover.intent.extra.TAX_AMOUNT=0, clover.intent.extra.NOTE=Transaction Id: c729aaaa295e465f87392a3dd3d4fbf8, clover.intent.extra.TIP_AMOUNT=0, clover.intent.extra.AMOUNT=450, clover.intent.extra.LINE_ITEM_PAYMENTS=[]}]

I think it would be best for you to contact developer relations - https://community.clover.com/articles/33197/new-email-address-for-all-clover-developer-support.html and have them look into this issue. If necessary they can create an internal issue on our end for the relevant teams. Thank you.

When our apps crash an internal issue is automatically created on our end. These issues are triaged and worked in order of assigned priority. For this crash it appears the issue was fixed and pushed into the apps release that just completed rolling to production on August 30th. If you are still seeing this issue please provide me with a few examples so I can investigate (may be a different crash).

These merchants are seeing a different/unrelated crash. I commented on the internal issue that got created for this crash.
