DeSmuME freezes RA when attempting to open Quick Menu

Hey guys, am I alone with this? When I run any game in DeSmuME and then attempt to open the Quick Menu, RA freezes and I need to kill it using system monitor.

RA 1.10.3, Linux Mint 21 (but also happened on 20.2 a few months ago), latest DeSmuME. My PC’s specs: Also happens on my other PC (this is my laptop, the other one’s a desktop, i7-4790k, 32 GB RAM, GTX 1080 Ti).

I attempted this with a fresh retroarch.cfg, same issue. Would be interesting to see if anybody has any idea. RetroArch log:
