Gnome 3.14 Nvidia Wallpaper Artifacts

First off, as my first post, I have been using Arch for about 3 years and I just want to say thanks to the people that have provided and contributed to what is in my opinion is the best linux distro.

Now onto business, Ever since the 3.14 update there has been graphical artifacts when I resume from a suspended system.  On initial boot up the wallpaper shows correctly but after then gets corrupted on resume.  I found that some debian people are having the same issue: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo … bug=765436.  I am running the proprietary Nvidia driver on a GeForce GTX 650 Ti

pacman -Q nvidia
shows  nvidia 343.22-4 is being used.  I tried the nouveau driver and saw no issues but want to use the blob for other performance reasons. 

My question are has anyone else on Arch experianced this problem and if so what was your solution to fix it, Is this a Nvidia problem or a Gnome problem? Thanks in advance for your help.

Same for me since the gnome 3.14 update, with nvidia 343.22

There is an arch bug report for this too : https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/42511

Same issue for me.  Archlinux with nvidia 343.36-2.  I just change the wallpaper each time.

Re: Gnome 3.14 Nvidia Wallpaper Artifacts

Has anyone been able to fix this issue (besides changing the wallpaper or restarting gnome shell each time)?

It's odd because there doesn't seem to be many of us affected and i can't find any info on what causes this bug (besides the report on debian, which doesn't contain much info). Does anyone know what causes this?
