Bug Description

When I work with a lot of stuff open like chrome, vscode a terminal then it crashes often when switching tabs in chrome or even Firefox. If I'm under Wayland with Intel graphic, the hole session is lost and I go back to the login screen. So I have to stay in X because gnome can be restarted and I don't lose everything.
