I found it, thanks for the hints. I looked around in the settings menu and
first I just removed those keyboard shortcuts.
The result was that I still needed to start the program twice, but at least
no errors this time.
Eventually I fount that ”Use Status Icon” was checked. It means ”Show icon
in tray, which is the central place of control”. I don't know which tray
that would be, but I certainly didn't see an icon anywhere except the one
that's already available in the launcher.

So I just unchecked it and now it starts immediately.

Problem solved. Thanks!

Kind regards
