Summary Possible incompatibility with totcount (\newtotcounter) or other macros/packages

Description

A more detailed description is available at [TeX.SX Link].

In current MiKTeX distribution (both release and pre-release), compiling the attached MWE leads to java.lang.StackOverflowError that, according to bib2gls’s manual, may be caused by an infinite loop. The problem indicates possible incompatibility between bib2gls 2.3 2020-03-23 and \newtotcounter{} of totcount 1.2 or some other macros/packages that it invokes.

It seems to be related to the second line of the AUX file:

	\expandafter\ifx\csname c@tc@totc\endcsname\relax\newcounter{tc@totc}\fi\setcounter{tc@totc}{0}

as changing it to:

	\newcounter{tc@totc}\setcounter{tc@totc}{0}

reverts normal operation of bib2gls.

Also, reordering commands in preamble does not prevent these errors from occurring.
