When I build and install a snap from your git repository it prints the

demonstrates the problem. Most often the process of making such an example
will highlight the problem for you. Some hints can be found here:

I'd be more than happy to take a look at a small example the reproduces the
problem. I can't reproduce the issue from your current git repository
