Thanks! From a quick glance, Orca isn't frozen. Orca is still getting
and processing accessibility events even after that error. But it's
getting those events from defunct accessible objects, objects with

I'll take a longer look next week and handle the currently-unhandled
error. But the problem may persist. Orca cannot bring defunct/invalid
objects back from the dead; it can only try to gracefully step around
their bodies. Thus getting to the bottom of the Synaptic and/or AT-SPI2
issues needs to occur.

I'd be curious to know what happens if, when the Synaptic issue occurs,
you Alt+Tab into another accessible application. Does Orca present your
interactions with that app?

Thanks again!
