After upgrading to Catalina, I seem to be unable to ... use Anki, unfortunately. Launch progresses fine, the app syncs to AnkiWeb, and then I only see ... this:

blank screen in Anki 2

Uh-oh. )=

All of the menubar options work fine (in that I can bring them down, click on them, get some sort of response from the app); but no matter what I do, the main window stays blank. The app's not frozen; quitting works fine (it syncs, visibly, with text and a progress bar and all, and then exits gracefully.)

My setup involves an eGPU, if that's relevant.
