Bug: looping alert window opening a file with an xref and a block with same name

I have a file with an external reference to a dwg, and apparently with a block with the same name. When I open it I have a looping error window
which I can’t get rid off (as soon as I close it it jumps back).
EDIT: the same happens when I select “update” in the block manager:

We need an option to break the loop, or safely quit (I have to Ctrl -Shift- Esc to kill the process).
Luckilly when I launch Rhino it actually asks me if I want to load the xref, and if I say NO then the file opens.
