Vue 3 , ion-Slides, with loop, hangs on restart

my app uses slides, and i have set loop, so if the user gets to the end they don’t have to page thru all the pages to get back to the start…

const slideOps = { loop:true}

at the end we loop thru to the start, but, while the 1st slide is shown, it is now dead… no clicks are recognized, but the slides move with the left/right motio with button down

forward or back without loop… all is ok
