Yeap, IIRC this was the reason.

But, as far as I am concerned, I prefer to have Xwayland in the
Xserver domain, it's just more logical to me (many of the issues with
Xwayland nowadays are not strictly Xwayland or Wayland related, but
rather Present, glamor, etc.)

Yeah, I started adding the relevant label for Xwayland issues and MR,
but I tend to forget! I'll double check.
