Probably I don't try the exact same thing as you, but I see the same 
issue in the Linux build and the 1.06.002 version (on Windows or Linux).

Moreover, if I want to double instead of rolling, the toolbar button is 
inactive and cannot be used. Only the Game/Roll or Game/Double menu 
entries or their keyboard shortcuts are usable.

Regarding your earlier comments :

I could do this but SSE looked like it would work almost everywhere 
while AVX could not be available on older machines. The performance 
benefit of AVX vs. SSE2 is much smaller than SSE2 vs. no-SIMD.

It builds with GTK3 and is mostly usable (on Linux, didn't try on 
Windows) but there are still many quirks. It is unsuitable for release 
as is.

GTK4 is another matter. When I tried, the build failed outright. I 
suppose some of the features that come from GTK2 and are merely 
deprecated in GTK3 don't exist any more in GTK4.

I work on and off on fixing the easy deprecation issues. I don't think 
it really makes a difference but it made me notice some minor GUI issues 
(did you notice that in the Settings/Options widget, all the tabs had a 
small border around their contents, except Sound...)

On the other hand, the more involved problems like 
https://docs.gtk.org/gtk3/class.UIManager.html are beyond my competence 
and may remain there ; I'm not much interested in GUI or graphics
