There are already two (closed) threads,  FS#61974  and  FS#61982 , about a similar bug, unfortunately the same thing is happening again: gnome-control-center crashes when I click "Devices", and subsequent tries to start it end with almost immediate segfault. As with earlier cases,

gsettings reset org.gnome.ControlCenter last-panel

fixes gnome-control-center temporarily, until I again click "Devices".

Also tried downgrading gnome-control-center and glib2 to previous versions, that didn't help. I should probably mention that I'm not using Gnome Desktop, but Awesome WM with mostly GTK3/Gnome3 apps.

Additional info:
* gnome-control-center-3.34.1-1
* glib2-2.62.1-1

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install gnome-control-center
2. Run it
3. Click "Devices"
This task depends upon

Although I cannot reproduce the issue in "normal" situation, I get a similar issue with a dual-monitor setup after resume.
Maybe the are related.
Reported both upstream[1] and here[2].
