STM32 Link Utility firmware update resulted in huge slow down in programming

I just updated the firmware on the LINK tool as the utility app said the firmware on the cable was an old version. 

Following the instruction appeared on the screen, I updated the firmware using the option from the menu ST-LINK -> Firmware Update.

The firmware on the link cable is now  V2J23S4 according to the information on the screen. 


Before the update, connecting to the target and programming the .srec file used to take only a matter of a few seconds. 

Now, with the new one, it took almost 1 hour until it finally released the connection and the device memory is displayed (it took further 20 minutes after the "Verification... OK " message appeared on the screen (please see below), until the GUI fubakkt became responsive). 


Below is the log - please can you tell us what is causing this problem, or could we have the old version of the firmware back?
