Dear Benoit

Thanks for your quick response and action.

a) Issue is filed with Bugtracker #2714

b) I did not (yet) succeed in checking your last commit.
Is there a simple step by step tutorial I could apply in the terminal of 
a cloned xubuntu-22.04LTS test-notebook* ?

*Gambas 3.18.0 currently installed as ppa:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gambas-team/gambas3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gambas3

Again, sorry and thanks a lot for your patience with newbies
