I have a feeling this is a Wayland issue (or something to do with the combination of Wayland and the version of Gnome under 23.10). I've been seeing something similar with certain applications under mantic (23.10)
, and switching back to Xorg resolves the issue. I tried the same with your example, and observed the same. It's a little tricky to test because Xorg is currently broken on 23.10
(but there's a work-around in the linked bug).
As regards the difference between PC and Pi, I don't think there is one: rather I suspect that on the PC under mantic you were logging into an Xorg session (where the issue doesn't manifest), while the Pi image defaults to a Wayland session (where the issue does occur). I don't think the issue occurs under jammy (22.04) at all (regardless of session type). I double-checked this with a mantic VM on a PC, but if you've still got a PC with mantic installed, it would be interesting to see if you can replicate the issue there under a Wayland login (when entering your password, select the option from the cog at the bottom right)?
