Exactly, I have commented out all the enhanced code and using the standard one,
the card relocks without any problems. With the enhanced code, once the card
went into finetuning (playing with derotator registers), the frontend got
into some weird state and the card was never able to get lock again unless 
the inversion setting was flipped.
