After logging in into Cinnamon using GDM (with gnome-shell installed), the Cinnamon taskbar stops reacting after some time.
This happened after the most recent update (cinnamon 1.7.4-3). This renders cinnamon useless.
None of the buttons/functions in the taskbar (calendar, audio level, menu, etc.) react to any mouseclick. Also alt-tab does not work (anymore).
I had this issue on all computers after the latest cinnamon update (1 laptop, 1 netbook, 1 desktop).

Additional info:
* package version(s): cinnamon 1.7.4-3
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
Update to latest version and simply work for some time. It might be connected with watching a movie in full screen using totem (I am unsure).
Please let me know how to gather more usefull information! I am unsure of what you would need or how to retrieve that.
This task depends upon

The taskbar is actually (called) the panel.

It's an upstream bug, we can't do anything:
