I've confirmed a similar problem, I was testing some of this on the
PBP against RC2 as I was developing it but never tested the RC3. Any
chance you can grab one of the RC2 builds from koji [1] and see if you
have better luck? Also maybe 2023.07 from koji too. I'll try and get
to the bottom of this in the next week or so.
