I normally certainly prefer the stability of the long-lived releases.
I noticed an update was just released of the long-lived release:
The notes for this release say:

That sounds very much like my issue. I will verify next Monday if that
solves it for me. Can I assume that new 384.111 release will make it
into the main elrepo repository eventually?
