Black screen with mouse cursor after login

It started happening after recent update (pacman -Syu) (~3 days back?).
5.8.18-1-MANJARO
XFCE 4.14

My computer it set to lock screen after a few minutes of no keyb/mouse input. When i get back to computer and confirm my password, sometimes i have to wait 0-60 seconds with a black screen and only mouse cursor moving and changing its shape as i hover over various elements.

journalctl shows these recent messages.

dmesg shows these messages.

This issue seems similar: Black screen with cursor after login
but i do not have that folder that is suggested to be deleted and locate finds only:
$ locate “org.kde.plasma.eventcalendar”
/usr/share/icons/Papirus/48x48/apps/org.kde.plasma.eventcalendar.svg

Update: todays logins are instant, maybe it is about some overload, i do not know. But even this happened i have not noticed any slowdowns in interface before and after the delayed login.
