Linux - anyone else getting a flood of ping processes while faeria is running?

These keep building up while playing, resulting in system “turbulence” - micro freezes.
Even weirder, when I exit Faeria, my task manager always crashes.

Has anything relating to ping been done with network code lately?

Not sure if this is related to something else, so I thought I’d check here first before reporting a bug.

I do not have this issue on latest Ubuntu. Some turbulence as well which presumably is due old hardware.
