I am running Antergos in a VM (VMware Workstation 12 Pro 12.5.2 build-4638234). I’m running Gnome-shell 3.22.3-1. When I try to run Filezilla by clicking the icon or from the command line, the VM freezes, can’t restart Gnome, and I have no choice but to power off/on the VM [yes, I have to follow Roy Trenneman’s advice from The IT Crowd].

What is weird is that this behavior will go away when Filezilla is updated and comes back again on a subsequent Filezilla update.

Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this issue?
