Call to set LimeSDR-mini transmit gain is blocking

I have a minor problem with the LimeSDR-mini, used with GNU radio and SoapySDR -> SoapyLMS.
When I issue a call to change the transmit power, the call is blocking and it takes around 1-5 milliseconds to return from execution. This does not happen with other devices, like Pluto with SoapyPlutoSDR.
I am using an older version of LimeSuite because I have a pre-release board and can’t flash the new firmware:
Library version: v17.10.0-g0167e645

Can anybody tell me if this is different with newer versions of LimeSuite libraries?

Example here:

Can anyone confirm that the latest LimeSuite doesn’t show this problem?
