When preparing the package I get the following error message

@glorious-yellow Do you use both this package and mutter-performance? If this is the case, try to use mutter and see if it makes a difference. If not, remove '536' '1440' from the _merge_requests_to_use array of this package, rebuild and check again.

The poor performance only manifests in this package. The one from [extra] does not have the performance issues.

@glorious-yellow This package only or both this one and the one from [extra]? If the latter, consider opening a bug report upstream. Also make sure no extension is the cause of this.

I'm noticing severely worse performance especially with activities overview after updating to 3.38.

If you are experiencing shell coredump indicating st_theme_get_custom_stylesheets, try with !536.

I got crashes with wayland and adapta gtk+shell theme with this off.

@FuelFlo Great to hear, thanks for testing!

@Terence thx!

Well it doesn't seem to happen anymore with the update you pushed, including 786, 923, 1126, 1164 and 1192.

...while it definitely also happened with the original arch mutter and gnome-shell package.

@FuelFlo try the new update I just pushed just in case.

If you can reproduce with the official arch package as well (make sure you also revert to mutter and not mutter-performance), then it needs to be reported upstream.
