Processing IDE crashes Xwayland

The save dialogue box on Processing IDE is capable of crashing Gnome. On KDE, the crash is caught and reported that Xwayland died, and everything works a-ok on with sway.
It’s unhappy about dbus and is fairly trivial to reproduce.

  1. Download Processing 4.0.1 https://github.com/processing/processing4/releases/download/processing-1286-4.0.1/processing-4.0.1-linux-arm64.tgz

  2. Run processing-4.0.1-linux-arm64/processing

  3. Go to File > Save

After a moment you’ll be dropped back to the console.

Installing ibus and gdm and invoking gnome that was causes processing to just die without taking the entire environment down with it but I suspect that’s because things are running through X and not Wayland base on the packages that were installed along with gdm.

what if you export _JAVA_AWT_WM_NONREPARENTING=1 before starting processing?

It now says double free or corruption (!prev) after it crashes in a gnome session invoked via GDM.
If I start gnome from the shell, processing still takes the desktop environment down.
