Default [Q] CM11 proximity sensor problem

Problem: Phone rings - Taken to ear - screen goes dark - talking talking - hang up - look at screen - somethings have opened ( apps or settings or bluetooth or people etc.)

I had tried Sultan's and Albinoman's CM11 kitkat roms. Happening in both. It didn't happen on any sense based rom.

I am trying Hypernonsense ICS now, so far so good, no problem.

What would be the problem with that situation??

If it is hardware, how do I not see the problem with different softwares? It didnt happened on Vipers or stock rom.
Curious.

My experience was slightly different: proximity sensor was not working while making calls (turned black and not on uless pressig twice power button), but working fine with skype and viber.
once tried spraying a bit of wd40 as suggested in this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1559945&page=4 everything works fine!
Check if your sensor is working with other apps, maybe it's software related!!!

This is weird. The light and proximity sensors only work on mine if I restart the phone 'with the power cord inserted'. ?!?
