Ugh!  I'm just guessing, but I suspect you are now seeing a *different*
issue related to one of the AWT race conditions we seem to encounter
from time to time.  If you're willing to try with another window
manager, that might tell us something.  You can also try exporting
"NOISY_AWT=true" and hitting CTRL-Shift-F1 to dump the AWT component
hierarchy [1] (and then sending that to me so I can compare it with the
hierarchy I see on my system).

But the larger question of whether pdfsam is fit for stretch is probably
the more pressing.  The Debian packaging is quite dated at this point
[2], and while looking into this issue, I noticed that the Debian
version phones home for an update check during its startup...  :(
