crash on opening project

Launch Cubase 10.5.20, open project I was working on yesterday evening. Crash. Crash log points at Izotope neutron3 gate. Strange, worked fine yesterday and nothing has changed.

Let’s try a trick that sometimes works: open a new project first. Close it. Then load the offending project.

Now it works.

For me, 10.5.x has been messy from day 1.

The 4-5 songs I am currently working on crash/stop recording/glitch. OK, I am using third party plug ins(all up to date) but this is ridiculous.
