Black Screen Bug After "Fate of the Sacra" Fight with v1.5

I encountered a bug I wanted to report while using the opted-in v1.5 beta. I've had great success so far running the game, but then I encountered a problem involving the fight in the "Fate of the Sacra" mission (leaving the name off for spoiler reasons). After the fight is successfully completed, the game gets stuck on a black screen with a visible mouse pointer and music playing. I have to force stop the game to break out of it.

Reverting back to the current non-beta release resolved this issue for me.
