I am running Sparky 7, rolling, kernel 6.0.0-6 on an AMD Ryzen 5 4500 U with Radeon Graphics.
I noticed that DE Mate and Cinnamon were compromised while there were no problems with Openbox or XFCE on the same machine.
window title bars vanished, thus no chance to maximize, minimize or close
panels  moved or were lost, panel items were lost
de- and reinstallation solved part of the problem, window title bars still vanished
panel applets were exchanged, menu applet disappeared
de- and reinstallation solved the problem

Has anyone experienced a similar problem and knows the reason to avoid future problems?

Best, CMS

XFCE is now affected as well
Some further infos:
Opening applications in MATE squeezes them into a tiny window in the upper left corner of the screen, no chance to move it
starting "MARCO --REPLACE" in a terminal regains full functionality of all windows with title bars reappearing
once you close the terminal nothing functions an ymore

the terminal prompts the following messages concerning MARCO:
log level 128: unsetenv() is not thread-safe and should be used after threads are created
Buggy client sent a _NET_ACTIVE WINDOW message with a time stamp of 0 for 0x1c0000c (Advanced M)
meta_window_activate called by a pager with a 0 time stamp; the pager needs to be fixed
