As of 40.0+39+gd9e953e93-1, backgrounds no longer work. The default Gnome background renders a solid blue, picking any other one results in a solid white background.

Package versions:
* Gnome Shell:40.0+39+gd9e953e93-1
* Mutter: 40.0+55+gf4f82bcb9-1
* Gnome Backgrounds: 40.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
* Upgrade to 40.0+39+gd9e953e93-1
* Reboot

This task depends upon

I can confirm this behavior, no more backgrounds possible, the entire desktop is black. Downgrading to gnome-shell-1:40.0-1 brings back backgrounds. I allowed mutter last upgrade to mutter-40.0+55+gf4f82bcb9-1.

I can also confirm that behavior in version 1:40.0+39+gd9e953e93-1 of gnome-shell.

From a comment on the issue filed upstream <https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/-/issues/4138#note_1085366>:
> That's because 58ed969d needs gjs@ec9385b8, but Arch is shipping gjs 1.68.0.

Fixed as of gjs 1.68.0-3
