With gjs 2:1.68.0-2 installed, when I am logged into a GNOME session, and I open the wifi selection dialog, I can't exit that dialog anymore (neither the "Cancel" button nor connecting to one of the listed wifi networks close the dialog again). I haven't been able to figure our how to kill that dialog from another terminal, so I usually have to resort to the really crude "systemctl restart gdm.service".

This happens regardless of GNOME shell extensions being enabled or disabled, so this is likely not a duplicate of  FS#70117 .

Downgrading to gjs 2:1.66.2-1 solves the issue but is obviously just a stopgap measure.
This task depends upon
