I've accidentally opened a binary file in gnome-text-editor, which caused the editor to hang. Since the session is restored, when I reopen the application, I cannot use gnome-text-editor anymore (it just always hangs).

I'm looking for the configuration or cache file so I can remove it or disable session reloading. Where can I find this?

Note that reinstalling the application did not help, neither did opening the application with any flag available in the help menu.

Running on Ubuntu 22.10, version: 43.1-1ubuntu1, target: amd64, installed via apt

The session state is stored in the file ~/.local/share/org.gnome.TextEditor/session.gvariant. Removing that file will delete the current session state.
