Steps to Reproduce


Root Cause

The UsageDaemon background thread runs all the time, and this particular thread somehow is getting interfered with normal threads of the user requestors, which is not expected to happen in the happy path scenario. If the daemon ends up using this recycled thread, due to this bug, it uses this thread without properly re-initializing it.
