Aah I'll look into that, any pipe stuff is residual from me recently
changing to dbus (only did that the other day) using a pipe was how I first
did it. I'll remove it. I pushed the changes to fix the git repo yesterday
but it wasn't really ready.
Will be nice if it's the pipe causing the trouble. Will be home in an hour
to test.

Thanks for looking into it.

Odd though how it's now fixed in mint.
Deb 11 now has bug but not if I revert that commit i mentioned. Bug goes
away without those changes?
