VS Code crashes and Ubuntu freezes when starting Julia Language Server

Hi all!

I have been using Julia and Julia VS Code extension for years without issues. However, recently, whenever I run VS Code on my Ubuntu machine (18.04), the extension tries to start the Julia Language Server and download the symbols without success: my RAM and Swap are filled, making the OS freeze. After some seconds, either the connection is closed, and the server is restarted (with the same result), or VS Code crashes:

I currently have 16GB of memory:

I know some users already have had this problem, but I couldn’t find a solution. I tried cleaning the caches and reinstalling Julia and VS Code but without success.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this problem?

Thank you in advance!
