Hey Daniel, thanks for taking a look! It turns out that this patch worked
in Weston 3, but in Weston 4, commit
85d55540cb64bf97a08b40f79dc66843f8295d3 broke it. I didn't investigate
carefully enough to understand what that commit was for or why it broke
this, but my patch plus a revert of that commit makes Weston 4 work without
side effects we've been able to observe, so that combo is what we've been
using for the last month.

I hope that's useful information…
