Both of mine have been getting bubbles in the cold recently. Could be unrelated to the bang.

The bubbles seemed to have vanished when I was back inside for a while. Kind of strange.

Yup, exact same behaviour as mine. I found this today:

Interesting, so just the sub0 temperatures are messing with the internal liquid. Once it still works after being left at room temperature.

It was really great fun and I avoided being kadavar of the year....major shock to the system racing for so long! Was half expecting to see your name on a start list

My Silvas get bubbles in them when they get a little older. Bubbles apper in cold temperatures and high altitude. But like you wrote, they disappear in room temperatures and if not, I take them to sauna with me :)
