I think it's not specific to Kali but it's an upstream issue. It looks like : or

If you think your issue has not been reported yet, please report it upstream:

FYI new version 5.0.35-0kali1 will be uploaded in Kali today

The problem is exact like written at point 12037 in Github. After updating on Framework Version 5.0.35-dev this morning the problem is solved.
