Restarting on ESP8266 takes too long

#1

AFAIK there was no such problem in 2.13.0 but after upgrading to 2.13.1 mgos_system_restart called from timer callback or mgos_system_restart_after takes almost half minute. For example see logs when I called mgos_system_restart_after(10):

But if I call mgos_system_restart() directly from mgos_app_init then it takes ~ 3 seconds:

Minimal testcase

Application code:

#include "mongoose.h"
#include "mgos.h"
#include "mgos_app.h"

enum mgos_app_init_result mgos_app_init(void) {
  mgos_system_restart_after(10);
  return MGOS_APP_INIT_SUCCESS;
}

mos.yml:

This behavior is due to this commit

It has been fixed in latest

I confused, your sistem reboots?
The log below is what appear when rebooted?

[May  2 11:10:48.458]  ets Jan  8 2013,rst cause:2, boot mode:(3,6)

I ask because I reboot my device but it only shows that.
In my code it should log more:

  const char *file_path = "/test.txt";
  FILE *fp;
  fp = fopen(file_path, "r");
  if (fp == NULL)
  {
    LOG(LL_INFO, ("File not exist, creating it"));
    fp = fopen(file_path, "w");
    if (fp == NULL)
      LOG(LL_INFO, ("Couldn't create it"));
    else
    {
      LOG(LL_INFO, ("File Created"));
      fprintf(fp, "This is testing for fprintf...\n");
      LOG(LL_INFO, ("Printed to file"));
      fputs("This is testing for fputs...\n", fp);
      LOG(LL_INFO, ("Printed to file 2"));
      fclose(fp);
      LOG(LL_INFO, ("File closed"));
    }
  }
  else
  {
    LOG(LL_INFO, ("File Opened"));
    fclose(fp);
    LOG(LL_INFO, ("File closed"));
  }

When I flash the code, its run ok and created the file.
Then I reboot by pressing a button on D0 for 2.5 seconds.

void check_reset_action(void *pArg)
{
  if (is_long_pressed())
  {
    mgos_system_restart_after(10);
  }
  (void)pArg;
}

But it doesn’t show the log for reading the file,
It only shows:
