Default Cm11 bug am I the only one?

Noticed in cm11 that when I take photos in the dark it uses flash to focus when I first boot which is normal but any time after using the torch app the flash no longer comes on to focus and will only flash with the photo resulting in terrible night shots and white washed out photos? Everyone else experiencing this as well?

What happens, if you go to your recent apps button, is Torch still there?

So scenarios to test.

Fresh boot, Camera, do photos flash?
Fresh boot, Torch, Camera, do photos flash?
Fresh boot, Torch, Recent Apps closing Torch, do photos flash?

Additional, repeat the above but do you actually have to only open Torch, or open Torch and switch on the LED to use as a flashlight and then switch off the LED.

If you run through those tests that would help determine if Torch is the issue.
If I've helped, just press the thank you button

Fresh boot camera works perfectly normal

Fresh boot torch open toggled on/off camera will not use flash to focus but only during the actual shot.

Fresh boot then closed in recents im gonna flash back to cm11 now to test.
