Lumia 520 bug

Found a bug in my new Lumia 520:
I use a flap cover. While working with the phone, if I leave it unattended without locking it, and close the flap cover.
After opening the flap cover the screen doesn't respond to touch. I need to lock and unlock it again to use it.
Any update on this problem?

Solution - Avoid cheap flap covers, magnets 'could' damage things inside the phone.
I remember Nokia 3250 acting strangely when put inside a magnetic pouch, its camera would turn on and would go crazy.
Try to use the phone for next 2 days without flap cover, and feel the difference.

It's a common problem all windows phone owners are facing all over the world. It has nothing to do with the flap cover.

Exactly, my flap cover has nothing to do with magnetic field. It's just a plastic case with cardboard flap.
Windows ppl should work on the functionality of the proximity sensor. The problem is worst when I've to pick up the call if i accidentally close the flap and try to pick the call, the touch doesn't respond.
This is a very embarrassing situation.

The problem seems to be resolved. I don't face this problem any more. Thank you.
