Summary0005782: Gnome does not display wallpaper and locked screen image if display scale is above 100%
DescriptionThe Gnome interface shows a blank white background as a desktop background and locked screen image when I set the display scaling to 200% (from Settings -> Devices -> Display) or even 300% (I did not go higher).
But if I set it to 100% it works correctly.
Steps To ReproduceSet the display scaling to 200% or more.

I forgot to mention it's running on VMware.

And apparently, others have the same issue:

Apparently disabling 3D acceleration fixes the bug...

It also seems to have fixed a bug with flickering/misbehaving UI (like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ym0JjAMf3YE )
