Ok, yes, let us know if the credit scheduler seems to not suffer from
the issue.

I'm curious about another thing, though. You mentioned, in your
previous email (and in the subject :-)) that this is a 4.13 -> 4.14
issue for you?

Does that mean that the problem was not there on 4.13?

I'm asking because Credit2 was already the default scheduler in 4.13. 

So, unless you were configuring things differently, you were already
using it there.

If this is the case, it would hint at the fact that something that
changed between .13 and .14 could be the cause.
