Bug Description

Hello,

With Kubuntu 18.04 beta 1, I am using xvkbd virtual keyboard without any problem in my plasma session.

When I start a wayland session, xvkbd runs well with opera for exemple.

But If I try it with kate, the system lock the mouse and I can't do anything (the system send a notification to unlock : "ESC" during 3 sec).
A default virtual keyboard can be activated but it is too restrictiv.

Because, I am disable, it's really important for me and, if I well understand, wayland will be the standard in the futur.

Someone can help me ?
Thank you.

Sorry, english is not my native langage.
