Animated background/wallpaper (changing over time) causes freeze in interface and system
Found in versions gnome-shell/3.38.0-2, gnome-shell/3.36.6-1
- Your OS and version: Debian Testing and others
- Affected GNOME Shell version: gnome-shell 3.38.0-2 and gnome-shell 3.36.6-1
- Does this issue appear in XOrg and/or Wayland: Both
- Version Nouveau: 1:1.0.16-1
- Version Mesa: 20.2.2-1
Not occurs with driver proprietary of Nvidia.
Bug detected when changing the wallpaper that changes throughout the day. This occurred on several Linux distributions that have a version higher than 3.36.
Steps to reproduce
I try to change the wallpaper to the wallpaper that changes throughout the day and the interface freezes, on the nouveau and nvidia GeForce 310M and can occur on other devices.
The interface freeze the moment it was changed to dynamic wallpaper.
What did you expect to happen
There is no total system freeze on Wayland and the interface freezes on xorg still responding to the keyboard. Considered abnormal behavior, shouldn't happen. In version 3.30 I confirm that this feature works correctly.
Relevant logs, screenshots, screencasts etc.
