Randomly ZCM agent can fail to receive device assignments

Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2 Policies
The device has different policies and/or bundles assigned than the user.
ZCM agent does not receive device specific assignments, so related policies and/bundles are not available.
In case of device assigned full disk encryption policy, the hard disk gets unencrypted.
The issue in this case is that only one general checksum is cached without distinguishing between user and device related assignments. So in rare, quite random situations the device session can reuse the user related assignment response checksum leading to the issue that the ZCM agent takes the very same assignments, the logged-in user actually has, as device assignments. This causes device specific assignments to get ineffective at least until next ZCM agent refresh.
