MongoDB Realm: Error: error loading dependencies for app

I’m occasionally seeing on MongoDB Realm logs this Error: error loading dependencies for app. Newest incident: Nov 19 11:24:47+02:00

Seems to pop up when we have had for some time idle on MongoDB realm and our existing user tries to log in with custom JWT. When logging in again everything works normally and both from IOS app and MongoDB Realm point of view.

Our app also crashes at the same time. (See crash report below) Unfortunately this was a non release build w/ debug information w/o dSYM and standalone use. Crash report shows that it’s an app side Realm related crash as can be seen from report:

Going through app code application is written so that it should recover from failing login attempt cracefully. Kind of hinting that issue lies in app.login(credentials:compeletionHandler:) which should in completion handler return error if something goes wrong. Unfortunately without dSYM file I can’t verify that.

Anyhow, could some check what causes this MongoDB Realm dependency issue and what happens when it’s triggered. I also have now made a build with dSYM activated for debug thus when this happens again hopefully I can really see what happens on app itself. Unfortunately this phenomenon does not happen if there has been some activity on MongoDB realm side thus making debugging really difficult.

We also have this issue sporadically

Has anyone resolved this? I am now having this issue for existing users and the app immediately crashes at login.
