I forgot to add this in my other email.  When I run leanfront, all it
is crash.  This is with your pre-built package.  After I enter my
backend's IP address and exit the settings, leanfront exits back to
the Android, home screen after a few seconds.  After that, every
launch attempt immediately returns to the Android, home screen.  I can
provide an adb log if you like.
