It seems likely to be the error on top of the weekly report for hirsute but that's missing a stacktrace

One comment in addition on the change there, was the env split + iterate over pathdirs basically a re-implementation of https://developer.gnome.org/glib/stable/glib-Miscellaneous-Utility-Functions.html#g-find-program-in-path ? If there is particular reason to do that I would recommend just using the glib function instead (which might also fix the issue as a side effect, I didn't check)
