Issues with running Xclient using xwayland.

This sounds like the problem I had in that it is finding the xorg.conf 
setup needed to run X normally.

I posted a patch some time ago to make the xorg server use different 
filenames when running the wayland backend. I really can't see any other 
way to allow xwayland to run on the same machine that somebody may also 
want to run normal X on.
