Looks like we're not alone, Ubuntu has the same problem:

Their recommendations were to use a different maxima-runtime (one of
maxima-runtime-clisp, maxima-runtime-cmucl, maxima-runtime-sbcl).

Upon closer inspection of ubuntu's report, they claim it to be a gcl bug, see

closing this (for now), as the bug that prompted it seems to be not reproducible.
