Any response!!!

Upstream knows about it, but no fix has been made yet. I see this on only one of three machines I use daily. They all have very similar hardware (same video driver for instance) and all the same shell extensions.

@Hicham, do you have the Gnome Shell Weather extension installed and enabled?

effectively, the origin of problem was from Weather extension, I disabled it, and now I'm fine :). thanks
