image of buttons right after re-login

Description of problem:

I like to have a couple of Application menu widgets on my desktop,
one either side of the screen to make it easier to start stuff.

Back prior to fc24 they were working well; stayed where I put them
and were the shape that I left them... square, and about an inch wide/tall.

Sometime towards the end of fc24 updates  they turned from square into
rectangles about 3 inches wide.  Resizing them back to squares worked
until you re-logged in, and they reverted back to rectangles.

The icon images also changed over time; but I can cope with that.

Toward the end of fc25, this all seemed to fix itself; the icons
remained square over logins, life was good.

Then I distro-sync upgraded to fc26.   The icons went ballistic.   They
keep reverting and repositioning themselves after a login so that
they are near the middle of the screen, about 8 inches stall, 3 inches wide

(see attached image)

Removing them and re-adding sensible ones (well the default seems to be horizontal rectangles again) works until you re-login, and they revert to
the enormous ones again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. right-click on desktop; use Add Widgets, add a couple of Application Menu widgets to where you like them
2. note they appear ok-ish (except they're too wide... not square)
3. re-login and note they're enormous and not where you put them

Actual results:

Expect them to stay exactly as I put them and the shape/size as I put them.

Expected results:

They're nothing like what I set them to after a re-login.

Additional info:

I'm tracking fedora updates on a  weekly basis

right now I have this:


Not sure if I've filed this report against the correct package though.
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-03 05:00:00 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '26'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Updating report to fc27 as in fc27 nothing has improved
