I posted on the freedesktop bugzilla, against as it turned out the wrong existing bug report, but was pointed to the solution by Michel Dänzer, an employee of AMD and author of the required patches. This issue affects multiple distros and multiple desktop environments, ie kde, gnome, lxqt. The bug report is at:
The patches can be located in there git repository at:
They have been published there 7 days ago for 5 of the patches and 8 days ago for another. I did not bother with the patches but did a git pull and made sure the error went away that way, but there are both patches, and diff available.
