I've had already some reports, that it doesn't work on Mac as it should or
not at all. Unfortunately I don't have any Mac to test at the moment.

It looks like this is a problem only on Mac. Looking at the stacktrace,
can you try the following for me?

After you start the DRBD-MC, click and write "godmode" to the black
terminal area. You'll not see any characters there, but it will unlock
some menus, if you'll not make any typo. Up, next to the "Session" menu, a
new menu "Settings" with "Look and Feel" submenu will appear. Select a
"MetalLookAndFeel" there. If this helps or the Metal look and feel is not
there, please let me know.
