When recording using the MyTracks method and you hit the homebutton or "back" button, Locus will disable the GPS as though it was in non-recording mode. This is a virtual disable of course, since MyTracks keeps the GPS physically active. This behaviour however has consequences for the NMEA recording: although it is set to "track recording", it stops when Locus isn't active.

Current behaviour: When MyTracks recording is started and NMEA recording is set to "track record", NMEA recording will stop when Locus isn't active because of the GPS disabling.

Expected behaviour: When MyTracks recording is started and NMEA recording is set to "track record", keep GPS enabled and keep recording NMEA data, just like it is the case with Locus recording. GPS should only be disabled when Locus isn't recording, in the background (and the option "Keep GPS On when paused" is disabled, of course  ;) )
