I'm not sure exactly what you mean. I tried the following, but it still
doesn't work:

void global_add(void *our_data,
        struct wl_registry *registry,
        uint32_t name,
        const char *interface,
        uint32_t version) {

         if (strcmp(interface, "xyz_shell") == 0) {
          struct xyz_shell *xshell = NULL;
          xshell = wl_registry_bind (registry, 1, &xyz_shell_interface,
          wl_display_flush (display);




void idle ()
  registry = wl_display_get_registry (display);

  wl_registry_add_listener(registry, &registry_listener, NULL);

  wl_display_flush (display);
  wl_display_dispatch (display);
  wl_display_dispatch (display);
  wl_display_flush (display);

int main (int    argc,
          char **argv)

  struct wl_event_loop *event_loop = wl_event_loop_create ();
  wl_event_loop_add_idle (event_loop, idle, NULL);

  while (true)
      wl_event_loop_dispatch (event_loop, 0);

  return 0;

I also tried wl_display_get_event_loop() and tried to add_idle() to
that, but that caused the client to segfault.

I tried putting wl_display_flush() wherever I could think of but to no
