Hi segfault! Do you want to take this one? Optimistically assigning #16333 to you as well since it is similar (happy to do the release + package update work myself once the code review & testing passes on your side).

OK.

Here is a patch.

It doesn't seem to work or I don't understand what it's supposed to do. I tested it by adding the two lines to the desktop launcher in Tails (which is called unlock-veracrypt-volumes and not veracrypt-mounter) and then starting the app. I expected the mouse cursor to spin until the window is shown, but the cursor didn't change. I see a spinner in the top bar but that is also present without the two lines. I made sure that when I start the app it does indeed use the modified desktop launcher (tested by changing the Exec line).

Yes, It's supposed to change the mouse cursor into a spinner right after
choosing to start the app. Since VeraCrypt Mounter opens super fast,
it's only visible for less than a second on my machine (but I guess it
could take longer in worse conditions).

I made sure that when I start the app it does indeed use the modified desktop launcher (tested by changing the Exec line).

Did you also restart GNOME Shell? I need to do this for my changes to be
applied on Tails:

Alt + F2 + typing "r" or "gnome-shell --replace"
