On the latest version of Hue Essential for Mac, clicking on menu "Hue Essentials", then "About Hue Essentials" terminates the app

Having just downloaded and installed the latest version of Hue Essentials for the Mac today (11/6/2022), successfully logging in with my Hue account, then selecting the menu option “Hue Essentials”, then “About Hue Essentials” produces a small message window showing “Error” on the header, with text “Invalid destination: a@2b87d1b5” and an OK button. Clicking the OK button immediately terminates the app. My Mac has the very latest version of macOS and all applications as of today’s date (11/16/2022) and the problem is repeatable. The app itself performs as expected once restarted though, and seems to be an excellent product.
