Ardour does cause issues for the OP, not for me, at least not the
version I'm still using, 5.8, a local build, not from repositories.

Gimp 2.10.6-2 is exactly the version from extra, that is
terrible unstable on my install. Now 2.10.8-1 from extra is installed,
but I didn't work with it and just test running gains nothing, since
it tends to crash when doing real work and I don't know steps to
reproduce a scenario to make it crash. There are a lot of reports that
Gimp 2.10 is unstable for many users.

My Arc theme is most likely based upon an Arc theme from August 2017
and probably needs an update.

I'm not using a DE, just the WM openbox, it stays steady at 3.6 since a
long time ago.

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ grep openbox\ .3.6 /var/log/pacman.log
[2015-07-03 09:33] [ALPM] upgraded openbox (3.6-1 -> 3.6.1-1)
[2015-12-12 06:21] [ALPM] upgraded openbox (3.6.1-1 -> 3.6.1-2)
[2016-02-21 14:53] [ALPM] upgraded openbox (3.6.1-2 -> 3.6.1-3)
[2018-06-26 07:47] [ALPM] upgraded openbox (3.6.1-3 -> 3.6.1-4)

I don't know if any issue is related to the theme I'm using, but for
testing purpose I soon or later will revert to adwaita.
