(apologies if this have been discussed on the list already, just joined today)

I have a problem on my Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS when version 4.7+ was installed in flatpak yesterday. The program starts, briefly show the welcome dialog and then crashes. It seems there is some system trap, see this /var/log/syslog excerpt:

Sep 28 09:36:47 XXXXX systemd[9025]: Started app-flatpak-org.gnucash.GnuCash-11322.scope.

here's the flatpak info (a system install):

Can anyone suggest a way to investigate the problem further? Tried updating. I'm reverting to GnuCash 4.6 in the meantime to use the program (as I do daily).

Thanks in advance,
