Kodi Matrix 19.1 and the resolution whitelist problem

I am running the latest CE with Kodi Matrix 19.1 on GT-King (rev. A) with PVR configured for TVHeadend backend (run on standalone RPi).

I noticed that when I set the whitelisted resolution in the System config, then Kodi becomes unresponsive when deleting the recorded shows (in TVHeadend), even for several minutes, and then recovers. If I remove the whitelisted res, the deleting the recorded shows works as expected.

Originally I had this in my guisettings.xml:

    <setting id="videoscreen.whitelist">0192001080050.00000pstd,0192001080024.00000pstd,0192001080023.97602pstd</setting>
    <setting id="videoscreen.whitelistpulldown" default="true">false</setting>
    <setting id="videoscreen.whitelistdoublerefreshrate" default="true">false</setting>

with 1920x1080@50Hz being the nominal res and refresh.

The log from Kodi when it got stuck recorded this:

2021-05-20 21:24:29.430 T:12848    INFO <general>: [WHITELIST] Searching the whitelist for: width: 1920, height: 1080, fps: 50.000, 3D: false
2021-05-20 21:24:29.430 T:12848    INFO <general>: Display resolution ADJUST : 1920x1080 @ 50.00 - Full Screen (16) (weight: -139276096.000)

Apparently it did not get stuck on TVHeadend backend (which I verified by tracing the tvh log as well), the delete operation executed immediately and returned, but for some reason Kodi GUI stopped responding, until it started again.
