 * Cinnamon-Screensaver version: cinnamon-screensaver 4.0.1-1
 * Distribution: Arch
 * Graphics hardware *and* driver used: nvidia-390xx-dkms 390.87-15
 * 64 bit


I can observe 100% CPU usage of the cinnamon-screensaver process while being logged in via ssh on my system from another machine. This does only happen when the media controls are being shown.

Steps to reproduce

# start a supported media player with the necessary dbus interface, eg. Clementine
clementine --play &
# lock the screen and observe 100% CPU usage
cinnamon-screensaver-command --lock

Other information

$ xrandr | grep 'Screen 0'
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 3840 x 1080, maximum 16384 x 16384
