at least kmail is adjusted to force the xcb platform plugin. All other 
applications which use QWebEngine should do the same:

qputenv("QT_QPA_PLATFORM", "xcb");
QGuiApplication app(argc, argv);

It's unfortunate that this happens - the only defense I have for it is that no 
browser currently works on Wayland ootb.
