No, it's definitely not expected. A few of us still use it quite
often, and not only does it seem to work in general, but it definitely
should work as well.

If updates freeze, I expect this is due to EGL blocking. DRI3 seems to
be the primary cause of this: could you please try to use DRI2 and see
how that goes?
