Default [Q] Light Sensor + Auto Brightness (sometimes) not working

I tried different roms (cm10.2, cm11, ls3.1, ...) all the same. Sometimes the light sensor seems not working. After reboots it may be found/activated or even not.

Yesterday i found the solution: If i reboot my Relay 4G in broad daylight or in the near of a lamp the light sensor (and therefore also the display auto brightness) works.

Maybe there is a test at bootup if sensor returns "0" the light sensor wont be activated? Anybody else have problems with auto brightness?

I have had similar experience when booting the phone in a dark environment. When the light gets bright it starts working again.
