So this is a new one as of 1.18.32. I do about a hundred of these 1:1 Zoom meetings with schools in our Minecraft program every year. It has to be Zoom, because that's what most of our local teachers have permission to use, and we need to use the platform that's most widely available to our schools. During the meeting, I demonstrate a couple of best practices they might not be accustomed to.
I can confirm repeatability now: when I exit the world and try to demonstrate how to back up a copy of the world file, Minecraft freezes as soon as I hit "Export" (it whites out and goes "not responding" when the export button turns green, and the save dialogue never pops up -- yes, I alt-tabbed and minimized windows to look for it) and I have to force quit the game. I don't know if it does the same thing if I try a second time because at that point I'm just trying to move the lesson along. I'm on a fairly beefy PC Build running Windows 10. I've demonstrated this a million times; this is only happening since the update, and ONLY if I'm sharing to a Zoom meeting. I export files several times a day without issue otherwise.
I also fairly reliably get hung up trying to open the Immersive Reader the first time I demonstrate it, again, ONLY while sharing to Zoom. It's not a freeze, I just get hung up on the opening Immersive Reader animation loop, and have to cancel and open it again. Then it works fairly reliably each subsequent time I do it that session. This has been happening for as long as I've been doing this program, though, not just for this update.
On the upside, I used to have problem with Minecraft locking up when trying to save a coding project, regardless of whether or not I'm Zooming, but that seems to have been resolved by the update, so I might be able to start demonstrating that again.
