Wireplumber high cpu usage

This last release fixed a core dump problem that was happening during boot.

However one problem remains that is when you lock the screen and it turns off, once you return you will see wireplumber process using 99% of the CPU.
This only happens if you have Firefox opened, didn’t test with other applications.

To fix, just close Firefox and open it again.

Is this happening only with me or you guys also noticed the same behavior?

I’m using Gnome here, everything is up to date.

It’s a known issue for a while now unfortunately as it affects my setup too, but there is a fix that is just waiting to be merged here: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pipewire/wireplumber/-/merge_requests/398
