issues with getting location with built-in location API

My problem is that on newer phones I am not getting location updates until I restart the phone. As far as I know this is an android bug, as described here: https://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=57707

Has anyone experienced this problem and found a solution to it? I have tried the Google Location Services API and had even more confusing problems with that.
