Package: mate-desktop
Version: 1.16.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainers,

I found that changing the background color to a "solid color" does not work at all in my environment.
It actually looked working at first, but after I did "Pick a Color" several times it stopped working and it does not recover even after I reboot the machine.
The background becomes just black, or sometimes a random color no matter which color I choose.
The "Horizontal gradient" and "Vertical gradient" options looks working.

I'm using Ge Force GT 710 and NVIDIA driver 375.20, in case this information helps.
The version of X is 1.19.1 (the default of stretch).
