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.
