"Recent Apps"-Screen Issue with .241

Star II
Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:
Model Name: Asus ROG Phone 6 16/512
Firmware Version: WW_32.2810.2212.241
Rooted or not: Not rooted
Frequency of Occurrence: reproducible
APP Name & APP Version (If your issue relates to the app): Menü Button.
In addition to information above, please also provide as much details as you can, e.g., using scenario, what troubleshooting you've already done, screenshot, etc.
I found a new reproducible bug, that leeds to an Android System bug preventing/omitting the "Recent apps"-Screen.
Step to reproduce:
Press the menu button. (thats the button you usally use for "recent apps" - at least I think it's what it is called) or swipe up for your recent apps. (it doesn't matter if you chose navigation bar or gestures in the settings).
close ALL apps - event the locked ones. (it doesn't matter if you swipe them away one by one or all at once. just be sure all are swiped away - also the ones you actually locked.)
Press the menu button again or swipe up for the "recent apps"-screen. There shouldnt be any apps open anymore, but usually you get the screen with "no recent apps opened" or something like that. Instead the devices starts to react strangely:
Prevention of "Recent Apps"-Screen getting called by swiping up or pressing the menu button.
Even if you start an app like "settings" - when you swipe down the top bar and open the settings, you can't call the "Recent Apps"-Screen anymore.
Sometimes it's not only preventing or omitting the "Recent Apps"-Screen, sometimes the screen just freezes with "No Recent Apps" as an overlay over the home screen. But the home screen is not frozen as i can see my widgets still moving.
To fix this issue just restart your device, but mentioned steps above are still reproducible everytime!

Can anyone confirm this issue?

I can reproduce this bug, too.
I guess the temporary solution would be to lock an app.

I have a similar issue.  It's triggered the same way. I'm using a third party launcher (nova launcher) for me the recent app screen sticks when there isn't any apps running . I contacted nova and they said its and issue with the Asus launcher and Android.

I can get out of the screen by swiping down  the notification bar and then swiping the home screen or menu. At least it avoids a whole phone reboot.

Like zt959595 said the temp solution is to just keep something open.

I hv same issue too since the last update

This bug is even worse for me. Pressing the recent apps button just does absolutely nothing (not using gestures, Nova launcher). Holding the button takes a screen shot so something is working. 

How are updates this broken even released? Does no one there even try to basic function test anything?
