Nemo 3.0.6 fix for desktop redraw errors

After some upgrades and a reboot, the desktop as drawn by nemo (using Cinnamon as DE) was showing redraw bugs, leaving behind graphical glitches just by selecting icons or moving them.

Googling revealed this to be a known problem with GTK+ starting in 3.21.x (in my case 3.22.12):
- https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=836908
- https://github.com/linuxmint/nemo/pull/1235

The attached fix is a cleaned up version of the one posted in the debian bug. Placed it in /etc/portage/patches/gnome-extra/nemo and after recompiling and restarting nemo the problem went away.

Please consider releasing a patched ebuild for 3.0.6 with this fix. Nemo 3.2 is still keyworded, as is the rest of Cinnamon 3.2.

Does the issue persist in 3.4.4?

I presume by keyworded you mean testing (~arch)? I'm not likely to backport a fix, but will rather make a newer version stable if necessary after the 30 day wait from today's bumps.

Can't tell. Since my system is mostly on stable, I added nemo 3.4.4 to package.keywords (that's why I thought the testing packages were "keyworded":). It runs and shows the "explorer" window but it doesn't draw the desktop at all. Perhaps it's not compatible with the rest of the stable cinnamon, but I'm not willing to mix a large part of the system just for this test. So I've gone back to 3.0.6 with the patch.
