FileOpenDialog crashes/freezes


I've just updated to Lazarus 2.2.4 with FPC 3.2.2 and now when any of my projects/applications opens a FileOpenDialog, usually via the standard FileOpenAct, the app freezes and cannot be stopped with Ctrl+F2, in fact the only way to get out of the situation is to kill the Lazarus process.

I've posted this in the Debugger section because if I run without debugging, or directly from the generated .exe, it works fine. I've tried all three debugging settings and the same thing occurs.

All I've been able to find so far was an old suggestion, from 2015, that the setting "DisableLoadSymbolsForLibraries" set true would be a solution - but we no longer have that setting.

I'm on Windows 10 - 21H2 64bit

I've changed to using GDB instead of FpDebug and now I don't suffer the freeze

I also found that "Reset debugger" from the Run menu was able to kill the frozen debugger.
