as part of my clone mode work[1] I obviously should test that I don't regress
the backends. The Wayland backend made regression testing hard by being already
broken in many ways. Here is a series to fix the issues I found. The series can
also be found at:


The Wayland-backend testing I did for this series was with a weston.ini that
made the two parent outputs of different height. The parent compositor was
using the x11 backend.

Wayland-backend testing:

parent: $ weston --output-count=2 --width=700


weston --use-pixman
weston --use-pixman --fullscreen
weston --use-pixman --output-count=2
weston --use-pixman --sprawl
- close parent outputs one by one

parent: $ weston --output-count=2 --width=700 --shell=fullscreen-shell.so


weston --use-pixman
- close parent outputs one by one

All the above work fine after the fixes. The hotkey to switch between windowed
and fullscreen (ctrl+alt+f) causes the switch from windowed to fullscreen to
make the parent xdg-shell unhappy, I did not look into that.

Thanks to Armin for providing the fix to the black secondary window issue.
