Approval flow waits indefinitely for approval/rejection when notification email contains attachment

Hello, my approval flow waits indefinitely for approval when "Create an approval" contains attachment.

Without attachment works correctly. This is very repeatable. I add attachments - flow runs without end on "Wait for an approval" action. I remove attachment - everything works OK.

After "Create an approval" action I send an email and the approval/rejection action is performed. If the email contains attachment "Wait for an approval" "hungs".

Not sure whether it matters - the attachment to approval comes from SharePoint list item attachment. I am able to send this attachment using standard email, so getting attachment from list item works properly.
