My desktop background is all grey, and never renders the actual background image.
top shows xfdesktop running constantly using up all cpu.
gdb backtrace shows it's stuck here..
Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.

It's almost as if it thinks the screen size is constantly changing (it isn't).
Changing the background settings in the display config tool don't make any difference.
rpm -q xfdesktop ?
Did it used to work? Can you pinpoint any changes?
yeah, it broke in the last week or so.
(possibly a slightly earlier, as I've been suspend/resuming this laptop for a while).
yum downgrade xfdesktop ; killall xfdesktop
and now it works again.
so something in between 4.10.0-4 and 4.10.1-1
This seems to be: https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9892
which only hits when you have a solid background and no background image. ;)
(I have an image here, so thats why I didn't hit it).
I'll look at pushing a build with the patch from upstream today...
that sounds about right. I have a vertical gradient.
