STM32CubeIDE connections view serial port option doesn't work properly


When selecting the connections view in STM32CubeIDE (latest version):

_legacyfs_online_stmicro_images_0693W00000bjX1eQAE.pngThe second you begin a device in run mode, the serial port connection is reset, as a part of the standard workflow of the Nucleo devices, then at that point, the STM32CubeIDE interface breaks (if you attempt to open the viewer shell using Connections->TEST->right click->Open Command Shell):

This is infuriating, and I currently have to run PUTTY in order to see the logging output (which is pretty annoying).

Could this PLEASE be fixed ASAP?

The repro is very very simple as above.
