This is resolved now.

I hadn't realised the O/P was running: yoshimi &
This creates a conflict as the GUI starts, then the CLI tries to start but has
already lost access, so stalls.

I had forgotten about this and hadn't been able to think of a way of dealing
with it.

One way out of it is the start with: yoshimi -c &
Then permanently disable the CLI from the settings menu.
Alternatively do an ordinary GUI start or even an ordinary CLI start and then
set the switch.

We could have set the first-time default for no CLI but I'm very reluctant to
do that as it makes it harder for a blind user to work out what's happening.

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
