After a certain PR was merged, Citra won't open with gamepad pluged in

And namely - https://github.com/citra-emu/citra/pull/4257
I need to disable it first, then launch citra, then enable it again for it to work. Which is quite a pain. It is visible in the Task Manager though, but nothing more.
Win 7 64
gamepad: logitech F310
