Bug Description

Ubuntu 21.10 on Wayland session
mutter 40.5-1ubuntu3~21.10.1

My apologies if this does not belong in mutter but because it happens in multiple applications, it's my best guess.

This is a weird bug because I don't know what causes it but it happens consistently after normal usage which for me means several times leaving the laptop idle and unlocking.

If I leave gnome-terminal and/or evince open, eventually any UI action like switching from multiple tabs, opening context menu etc will output the following to journal

gnome-terminal-[2393]: ../../../../../gdk/x11/gdkwindow-x11.c:5653 drawable is not a native X11 window

evince[3213]: ../../../../../gdk/x11/gdkwindow-x11.c:5653 drawable is not a native X11 window

I suspect this may happen with other gtk apps as well. This persists until each individual app is restarted.

If I leave any gtk apps open e.g. gnome-terminal, evince, Files open, and then open Google Chrome with the flags to enable wayland support

--enable-features=UseOzonePlatform --ozone-platform=wayland

Then any gtk app that was open outputs the following message to journal after any UI interaction, like switching tabs, opening context menu, etc.

gnome-terminal-[2393]: ../../../../../gdk/x11/gdkwindow-x11.c:5653 drawable is not a native X11 window

evince[3213]: ../../../../../gdk/x11/gdkwindow-x11.c:5653 drawable is not a native X11 window

This persists until each individual app is restarted.
