Desktop is frozen but can be unfrozen using the Super key

Hi,

I am using the screen saver but not using screen lock because of an issue with screen lock in Zorin OS 17 Pro.
Regularly the following happens when the screen saver is running. I move my mouse, I see the desktop with the running programs but I cannot click on windows to activate them and cannot click anywhere to start new programs. I still can login with SSH from another system, and syslog shows:

Feb 22 10:22:31 amd1950x gnome-shell[526445]: Object .Gjs_zorin-menu_zorinos_com_widgets_PowerMenuButton (0x5597dac906f0), has been already disposed — impossible to set any property on it. This might be caused by the object having been destroyed from C code using something such as destroy(), dispose(), or remove() vfuncs.

Until know I have been killing the gnome session which is of course very annoying, but I just found out that if you hit the Super key the desktop apps unfreeze. This is just a workaround, I hope this issue can be fixed.
