When trying to connect by NoMachine from a chromebook running Chrome OS v. 77 or later, the client hangs on the spinning wheel at stage 'Connecting to ...'. After some time the application becomes completely unresponsive and eventually closes itself.

This problem is not reproducible on earlier versions of Chrome OS (e.g. v. 76). It looks to be triggered by some changes introduced by Chrome OS to the Android Runtime.
