Manjaro Cinnamon X server crashes on Dell

After recent updates, the X server crashes on Dell XPS 15 laptop (it happens quite randomly).

I get a black screen, and to restore it I need to restart the X server from console.

It didn't happen before, something happened due to this week updates.

It seems to be happening, when I'm using PaleMoon (the fork of Firefox), doesn't seem to happen in Chrome.

Here is the log:

Partial/corrupted update? Try to reinstall glibc and lib32-glibc ... or try a new update by:
sudo pacman-mirrors -f5 && sudo pacman -Syyu

There is a new glibc and lib32-glibs update, wonder if resolves the issue.

Got exactly the same issue on Dell Precision. Also happened during Palemoon running.

That must be something Cinnamon specific, on Manjaro Deepin my Dell Precision7730 X server doesn't crash like that...


@oberon
Seems to be serious issue, maybe you'll have some ideas?
