LR 6.0 Crashes on Import after updating MacOS to Big Sur 11.3.1

The application crashes when I attempt to import photos, which was working fine prior to this macOS update.

2021-05-11 09:21:25.514 Adobe Lightroom[2883:46295] Warning: Expected min height of view: (<NSButton: 0x7f948c9d2ba0>) to be less than or equal to 30 but got a height of 32.000000. This error will be logged once per view in violation.

My main machine is a 2020 MacBook Pro M1 13", BUT, I literally own 2 Macs that I use for backup and situation like this:  

- a 2015 MacBook Pro 13" running Catalina (EG I use this to tether Capture One in my photography studio; Capture One claims they are not tethering yet on M1 Macs)

and

2008 MacBook Pro using some crazy old version of Mac OS.  That machine has a miraculous capability to restore crashed Seagate hard drives (5 times so far, when more modern machines just sat there clueless).   Also sometimes I have to use it to update the firmware on camera gear where newer versions of MacOS don't work with the firmware updater (camera manufacturers don't always take kindly to people who use Mac).   I keep this machine OFF my wifi network because it must be so easy to hack at this point.

This is my first time encountering this type of behavior in software and I work in computer software.  Last week I had a fully functioning application, and now it is not useable.  Sad to say the least.  You would expect that when you purchase an application that an update wouldn't wipe out the use of that software.

Lightroom Classic  6 in 2015. It was never built for Big Sur and Adobe never promised it would run on future operating systems forever.  

I have my install floppies for Photoshop 2.5; it will not run under Big Sur; or any version of OS X and never will. 

IF you wish LR6 to operate, run it under a supported operating system. No one at Adobe or elsewhere forces anyone to update their OS.

Yes, it's broken (as is LR5) under Big Sur. I have older versions like this I've tested and thus far, the only solution is to boot into Catalina or earlier for import. Of course, you can upgrade to a modern version of Lightroom; that works of course.
