Bug#980222: cinnamon: Cinnamon window manager freezes in Debian oldstable

Package: cinnamon
Version: 3.2.7-4
Severity: important

    * on Debian oldstable Cinnamon (3.2.7-4) is freezing on ALT+TAB switching
to other applications every so often,
      since about 2 or 3 years now, where only the mouse pointer will still
work and the rest of the screen is frozen

    * to regain access to the still functional applications running in
background, it's mostly possible to log into a terminal,
      via ALT+CTRL+F1 as root, and sigkill the "cinnamon --replace" process,
which will trigger a restart of the window manager
      (should be muffin 3.2.1-2 here)

    * switching applications via ALT-TAB is a very important productivity-
increasing feature, which should not work at all times
    * freezing window managers, which may lead to a loss of productive work,
are not acceptible

    * seems related to 789122, but there's a better workaround, which preserves
work-in-progress most of times
