I tested the patch but the problem still exists :(
Here is the new log from sgsn : http://pastebin.com/3PBKQwR5

Interesting. I have not yet observed this, as most likely my phones don't
include the "PDP Context Status IE" (TS 24.008 / 10.5.7.1).
Using this IE, the phone can tell the network "I think I still have PDP
contexts for the following NSAPIs active". The network then checks if it
has the smae view, and silently deletes all PDP contexts for other NSAPIs.
It seems that the current code is interpreting the IE the wrong way.
We interpret it as an uint16_t, do ntohs() and it is 0x2000.
Apparently NSAPI 5 was active befor (your log snippet is a bit short):
<0002> gprs_gmm.c:884 Dropping PDP context for NSAPI=5 due to PDP CTX STATUS
IE= 0x2000 <0014> sgsn_libgtp.c:212 Delete PDP Context <0014>
sgsn_libgtp.c:389 PDP Context was deleted
If I'm looking at Chapter 10.5.7.1, it seems the encoding is a bit odd, i.e.
actually the byte ordering is little endian!
Can you try the patch below and see if the problem is fixed?
