See subject. Ever since the BIOS upgrade, the dock no longer crashes.
Two days running now with no problems; prior to the upgrade it would crash routinely when connecting via USB-C. I had to employ the unsavoury workaround of connecting the laptop to a charger and connecting it to the dock via the USB-A port using the USB-A to USB-C adaptor supplied. Now I'm connecting via USB-C cable only.
In fact, I'd given up on using the dock at all and had it just sitting there. I decided to give it another go after reading that BIOS v1.19 fixed instances of BSODs occuring when connected to an external monitor (which I did experience now and again when connecting to an external monitor via HDMI i.e. not via dock).
Dock Type : 40AF
X1E Type : 20MF

Is your dock still working ok? I started this thread some time ago and just noticed your update (thanks).
I've updated the BIOS on my machine and whilst it's much more stable, I still had a crash today after about 3 hours of usage. As usual, it was when I opened a new Chrome tab. If I then open the laptop lid, pull out the USB-C cable for ten seconds or so, then re-insert it I can get back up and running.
I'll keep monitoring and update as and when.
