Rhino 8 issues

Hi folks, did Mcneel do something to the regular crash/freeze behavior or is this a windows 11 bug? I have an instance of Rhino8 that is frozen during a quad remesh of a big mesh (expected behavior, no big deal), but it has also locked me out of another instance which was running fine. I can’t app switch to it, I can’t select it in the windows task bar.
Very annoying.
Anyone having similar?
My machine is a beast, brand new intel, 192GB ram, should NOT be getting held up on medium duty shite like this.

When this happens, is your PC also nonresponsive to CTRL + Shift + ESC?
