Mirror inside a window glass not showing reflections.

Another question-bug?

I have inside a room a standard surface with mirror shader values (general specular reflection value=1 and IOR specular reflection=full) and outside there is a window glass with no specular reflection=0 and transmission value=1.

As you see I cannot see what the mirror reflects:

Then when I freeze the outside window glass, I can see normally the mirror reflections:

Any help please here?

Thanks for any Arnold guru's answer... :)
