GTK apps dont render when opened after an E restart.
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

As the title suggests. To rep restart E and open a GTK app like l3afpad.

I might be completely wrong but it seems that GTK apps start Xwayland and if it is not ready at some point (takes time for the Xwayland module to start on slow HW) they fail to render.

I think this is somehow a gtk bug. If xwayland is present then some gtk apps have trouble starting if they're the first window, though they're fine if e.g., xterm is started first. I would guess that they try to start up in xwayland first, but then they detect that wayland is available and somehow it breaks.

I suggest raising this on the gtk bug tracker and see what the response is; there's nothing that I can do about it.
