Opening song share link results in "Something went wrong" which persists across reload and restart

Debian + Spotify 1.1.84.716.gc5f8b819


Any share link I open results in chrome asking if I want to use xdg-open, which results in a new spotify window opening with the "Something went wrong; try reloading the page" dialog.  Reloading doesn't help

This persists even if I restart the client.  If I start it in the console I get:

[libprotobuf ERROR ../core/vendor/protobuf3/src/google/protobuf/wire_format_lite.cc:577] String field 'spotify.event_sender.proto.DroppedEvents.DroppedEventsBySequenceIdEntry.key' contains invalid UTF-8 data when parsing a protocol buffer. Use the 'bytes' type if you intend to send raw bytes.

So, somehow an invalid protobuf is getting persisted.  Blowing away the cache fixes the issue:

rm -r ~/.cache/spotify

 

So, opening songs from share links is broken for me.  There may also be a systematic issue here with error handling, IMHO this shouldn't break the whole client.

Example share link that reproduces this issue: https://open.spotify.com/track/6gZhmhlrI2fBKWzcEgCIOw?si=44d27687df9d489d&nd=1
