1. See your actual position
2. Zoom out, go to a different part of the world (half a continent away)
3. Zoom in, look around some nearby town
4. Click "Show my position". An animation will play moving from your current view to your actual position.
5. Everything will become white, no tiles are rendered
6. You can zoom out/move and see something, but only those tiles that you have already cached. No new tiles will be rendered, the server has banned you temporarily. You can't zoom in somewhere and see the details.
7. Restarting Maps doesn't help. Your IP is banned temporarily.
Proposing for a blocker discussion.
We have been seeing it on openQA for some time, today I have also reproduced this behaviour on my bare metal machine.
Yeah, this may explain why we keep getting failures of this test on openQA...

The go-to animation is gone, no more white tiles. Verified.
This is not completely solved yet:
Not sure if we still want to keep it a blocker, for this second way of how to break rendering.
FEDORA-2023-b3146555f6 has been pushed to the Fedora 38 testing repository.

I'd say this second approach of triggering the bug is not frequent enough to block on it. So I'll set this as VERIFIED. If there's an upstream PR to fix this second problem, I'll file a separate FE request.
FEDORA-2023-b3146555f6 has been pushed to the Fedora 38 stable repository.
If problem still persists, please make note of it in this bug report.
I'm backporting the second PR and adding it to the GNOME 44 megaupdate, so a separate FE should not be required.
