Pavel, I ran your mwe-lyx and got
LyX: Software exception Detected
LyX has caught an exception, it will now attempt to save all unsaved 
documents and exit.
Exception: std::exception

Did I understand you correctly, that you did not receive this message?

I am using Debian bullseye and Lyx 2.3.3
Should I upgrade to 2.3.4?
