The wallpaper blurred background setting doesn't last until reboot, unless the wallpaper is set as a single one and not as a presentation in a folder. It reverts back to "Solid color"

The wallpaper blurred background setting should remain after rebooting the system, even if I set a folder background presentation.

- Choose a folder where to get the backgrounds on plasma KDE, with a good looking blur effect on the angles instead of a solid color
- Reboot
- The wallpaper has solid color instead of a blur effect, the setting reverted to "solid color" instead of "blur background", see images. Only happens when a folder presentation is set, doesn't happen when a single image is choosen

Probably fixed upstream???

Not present on Neon, the KDE distro, so it's an upstream bug which got fixed

After sleep and re-login there is a graphics-fail:
the central image is proper, the surrounding blur is damaged.

i don't think it's the same issue, the problem about that graphics corruption is due to the nvidia proprietary drivers, the issue I mentioned happens only on reboot and even if the GPU driver isn't the nvidia proprietary one
