Obsidian crashes when math block rendering is changed in iPadOS 17.5.1

Steps to reproduce

Simply typing any character that invokes rendering change (such as typing ‘Space’ after closing inline math block, or break inline math block by inserting a single Space around the dollar sign, etc.). The iPadOS would have to be 17.5.1.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

Not being crashed and rendered fine.

Actual result

At first, it accepts the rendering change, but soon it becomes crashed immediately when math block rendering changes.

Additional information

Originally it worked fine until last night, but suddenly kept crashing after OS has been updated to iPadOS 17.5.1.

As I was using ‘Latex Suite’, ‘LaTeX-like Theorem and Equation Referencer’, and many other plugins related with math blocks, I thought there might be any clash between these plugins. However, even when I turned on restriction mode to disable all the plugins, the problem kept appearing.

Based on thse situation, I thought that it might related to OS.
