xfce4-panel: choosing system background color causes immense cpu leak on skyl...


Description svnset 2016-09-16 12:42:55 CEST
When activating xfce4-powermanager-plugin and xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin, both applications cause immense cpu-leak up to 40% cpu, system starts to hang after few seconds.

Both applications use the panel wrapper 2.0 instead of 1.0
Issue is gone when:
-choosing background image instead system color in panel options 
-choosing personal color and changing one time transperency back and forth. 
-removing the plugins from the panel.
Tested on vm and 2 different machines. Can only reproduce on Skylake cpu...

Steps to reproduce:
-Skylake Cpu
-install the 2 plugins
-activate plugins
-inspect behaviour in taskmanager and see immense cpu leak

It has still to be tested if more plugins are afftected.
