This works fine for me, and presumably other GNOME users, so there must be
something specific to your system that is relevant.

What messages appeared in the system log (systemd journal) at the time that
this happened?

Are you using any GNOME Shell extensions?

You reported this as a bug in version 3.38.0-2, but here you've said that
version 3.38.0-2 *doesn't* have the bug. What version did you upgrade to
that triggered this? (For now I've assumed 3.38.1-2.)

Mobian is a Debian derivative, and is not identical to Debian. If this
is caused or triggered by a change made by Mobian, then changes in Debian
will not fix it.

It might be better to report bugs in Mobian to the Mobian developers.
