Bug Description

Hi,

Liferea refuses to start on my laptop when I use Wayland, but is OK on Xorg.

The window does flash up, but then closes immediately.

Here is some relevant output, please let me know what further details I can provide to help.

Extra:

Just ran the same command under Xorg - the "assertion G_IS_OBJECT failed" error message still occurs but the window opens and the program runs normally. It seems that this part of the message might be misleading.
