Adobe Photoshop CC 2021 Continues to Kernel Panic macOS Catalina

I reported this problem last month, and while it is now less frequent, Photoshop CC 2021 continues to occassionally kernel panic macOS. I suspect the GPU, but that might not be it.

My 2015 MacBook Pro running macOS Mojave became extremely unstable (a dozen or more kernel panics in a few days) after installing Photoshop CC 2021. And since it did *not* have the macOS security update, which tends to implicate CC 2021. However, that might just mean that CC 2021 is hitting some Apple bug—no way for me to know.

Photoshop CC 2020 seems to be stable—that’s the best workaround.

Is this Adobe’s bug, or Apple’s bug? Hard to say, but it seems to happen only when using Photoshop. Maybe just because I spend a lot of time in Photoshop.
