Debug Grafana server

I am trying to debug Grafana Server.
When I run the server, attach delve, after I attach debugger. When I open UI it get stuck (no response). I tried compiling without optimizations (“-gcflags=all=-N -l”) didn’t help.
I also tried directly via IDE (“pkg/cmd/grafana”), when I run in debug it fails with segfault:

API server listening at:
unexpected fault address 0xffffffffc1245470
fatal error: fault
[signal SIGSEGV: segmentation violation code=0x1 addr=0xffffffffc1245470 pc=0x2323844]

goroutine 1 [running, locked to thread]:
runtime.throw({0x4dea20c?, 0xc00053e160?})

I am running linux (kernel 6.1), intel cpu, golang 1.19.5.
