The user of the service for hosting IT projects GitLab under the nickname "Jérémie" reported on block freezing for 45 minutes. Later in Riot chat he learned that developers are aware of the problem and they are working on its solution.

Bug between the baker and the node. The two communicate over json but the json serializer incorrectly handled some control characters. Immediate fix was to patch the serializer. Medium term fix is that the baker and node really should communicate using the binary RPCs instead.
