Bug Description

If I use digikam (qt5 app, Version 5.5.0) under xmonad I have the problem that starting a slideshow has a delay of 30 seconds. In i3 and kde it opens without delay.

The problem is independent of which option for "screen placement" I choose in digikam settings. It is also independent if I use nvidia or nouveau drivers.

Same problem also if I start digikam "kdeinit5 digikam".

Same problem with gwenview instead of digikam.

Maybe there is already a workaround with specific xmonad settings.
