xfce4-screenshooter sometimes blanks screen


I just noticed that xfce4-screenshooter sometimes blanks the screen. It looks like the lockscreen is activated for a split second.and then skipped. But I don't think it's really the lockscreen, only a screen image of it left in some buffer.
Afterwards, most of the screen is black. Sometimes, there is also a part of a window that has been screenshoot'ed recently and closed in between.
The windows are redrawn by activating them one after another. Fortunately the taskbar is always visible.

This is the command I issue:

xfce4-screenshooter -w -s /tmp/$USER/Screenshots/

The effect seems to depend on which windows are present and which one is active. And it's not always reproducible.

Has anyone encountered that too ?

Thanks and Regards,
