@PiWi - Yes please. I used to rely on little yellow sticky notes using a filing system best described as 'sedimentary'. Now, I am almost completely driven by bugs and issues in Github and Visual Studio Online. The best way to get attention is to open an issue.
Sorry, but I completely forgot to look into this issue - I suspect it is a race condition of some sort or a failure to parse the response from your particular ESP8266 firmware - both of which I can fix. I may need to ask you to enable some debugging output and send me the results, but I will look into it myself first. But yes, please do open an issue. I tend to cycle through my projects and clean up issues batch-style and I forgot this one the last time around.
