1. I will try to get the log next time this happens.
2. Yes, in online mode SB works as before; in Offline mode it happens most
of the time. My impression is that SB is not invoked at all.

Does the log contain any error messages?  Does it show any indication that a
new message has been received?

Is there any difference in behaviour between background filtering enabled
and disabled?

(Blind guesses, really).
