Even while my mails for what ever reasons need to wait for moderation,
you should reply to the mailing list.

That it's related to the Arc theme is very strange. I'm using an Arc
theme customized by myself and never updated the theme. At least a
self build Ardour 5.8 does run without issues on my machine.

A few GTK apps became unstable on my machine.

SpaceFM GTK2, migrating to SpaceFM GTK3 solved almost all issues.
Firefox and all Firefox clones, such as Pale Moon.
Claws-Mail GTK2, Claws-Mail GTK3 is even more unstable.
I guess GUIs to handle tar archives never worked very well on my Arch
install, I anyway prefer CLI over GUI for this purpose.
Last but not least, Gimp, but the latest Gimp releases seem to work for
nobody on what ever distro. Apart from those few nearly unusable apps,
anything else, GTK or Qt, seems to be stable.
