Looking at the PR it was meant to only set the backdrop if users were still in the first run mode of the start center. We will need to investigate why it has impacted others.
Nothing but a backdrop. Takes over the screen. Everything else is hidden
behind the gray featureless backdrop. I had to alt-tab to a terminal
window (what if I didn't have one already running?) in order to kill -9
And that means that there's no way to access the menu to undo the
damage. I had to remove my preferences files (which incidentally grew by
a couple of orders of magnitude) and recreate them.
No. I don't think that's overstating things *a touch*
