I upgraded yesterday from 5.7.4 to 5.7.5. I hoped the problem I have had
been fixed, but no. If I switch desktops too many times, or too often or
something, the desktop becomes unusable until I reboot (I haven't tried just
restarting xdm). It flickers rapidly, bits of one desktop are shown in the
middle of another or on a blank background, and it's hard to see just which
is the currently active desktop.
This may be a bad interaction with the xorg-driver for my AMD GPU, which has
only been on the market for about a year. Though sys-firmware/amdgpu-ucode
hasn't changed since June.
