> Unfortunately there's not much in this report.  It's another assert but there's no information in the backtrace that ties this to something KiCad does ("!xcb_xlib_threads_sequence_lost").  The only KiCad calls are "main" and "APP_KICAD::OnRun"

I'll ask the reporter for more info.  If it can be reproduced, then I'll follow up with a bug in the tracker.
