Description:

Upon certain actions, like rearranging fav's from the left sidebar gnome shell freezes. Moving windows to another workspace can also trigger this. pkill -HUP gnome-shell allows me to continue with my session. I do have user theme (numix) enabled, but this happenes anyway on clean settings. This is not a driver issue, cause it happens at work also on intel hd2000 (at home I use radeonsi with R9 270X).

Additional info:

* package version(s)

gnome-shell 3.10.2.1-2

* config and/or log files etc.

Copying dnd-* cursors from Adwaita theme to lil-polar theme fixed the issue.

I don't have the issue (gnome-shell-3.12.2-1)
either with adwaita (default) cursor theme or vanilla-dmz one
Comment by Jan de Groot (JGC) - Tuesday, 03 June 2014, 11:43 GMT
Only thing I can do to fix this is by adding a default theme that inherits Adwaita. As there isn't a default fallback theme at this moment anyways, I don't think it will be a problem to provide one. Adwaita-icon-theme will become an optdepend for libxcursor then.
