weston crashing when no HDMI connection

We are working on an embedded linux device built using Yocto (dunfell).   We have weston running and we are seeing our QT5 application running as well.  One problem we are having is that our application is crashing weston if the application is started when there is no active HDMI connection.  We see the error message "The Wayland connection broke. Did the Wayland compositor die?". We also see weston restart.

I have a smaller QT demo app with just a few controls, and that seems to work just fine. Launching it while there is no HDMI connection does not seem to affect weston at all. Is this a known issue with weston?  Has anyone seen similar issues with Qt5 and weston?
