Default [Q] SDCard Apps Shortcut Disappeared after Restart?

Hi Guys..

i have ported Xperia Z1 home for CM11 Rom but i m facing one issue that shortcuts of the apps which are on sdcard disappeared after restart.
Again i have to add them manually. i didn't get any exceptions thats why i need help.
Can someone who are using Xperia Z1 Stock Rom please conform that its a normal behaviour of Xperia Z1 launcher or not??

Ok, some time after reboot if you see a Green Android Icon instead of the Application Icon that mean the app is not yet loaded so my advice is to leave the phone few minutes alone after rebooting to let him load all the stuff. Also I had this issue with my Z1 at the beginning when icons disappear and instead of the App Icon I had a empty space. I update my launcher to newer version and I never saw this problem again. Can be the Launcher it self, try to switch to different one.

May I ask you which rom give you the option to move the apps to SD?

I have the same problem. Where is the link located when moving apps to sdcard? I find no link of the app anywhere.

there is the logcat while moving apps to sdcard...

while rebooting, it is saying that metadata is missing.

I think its cm issue, no launcher shows the app
