[phenixbb] Phenix GUI does not show (on Debian)

Dear all,

I installed phenix on Debian testing (version 11.0) and
Debian stable (version 10.10).

On Debian stable, phenix works just fine. 
On Debian stable (kernel 5.10.0-7-amd64), when I type 'phenix' at the
command prompt, I get the usually error about the locale 'en_GB' not
being available, and the Phenix splash screen, that disappears
automatically. After that, nothing happens. The prompt does not return,
phenix is running
tg at fibonacci:~$ ps -eLF | grep phenix
tg          3823    3776    3823  0    1 33859 83056   6 09:36 pts/1

but no GUI shows up.

I can use phenix through ssh on stable, so that this is not an urgent
issue. I was just wondering if anyone might have a clue why phenix GUI
won't show up on Debian testing? I tried two window managers, KDE and
awesomewm on two different computers.

Best wishes,
