Confirmed locally after switching to wayland. The fix included one permission:

I'll coordinate with Jamie for fixing this.

https://github.com/snapcore/snapd/blob/master/interfaces/builtin/x11.go#L131 already has:

owner /run/user/[0-9]*/.mutter-Xwaylandauth.* r,

Looks like Zygmunt's addition should be added under that.
