Glitch on Wayland fedora 31

Yup good info. Thanks for sharing! I think this will be increasingly
relevant issue as many distros have settled on Gnome 3 or a variation of
it. Even if not Gnome 3, they are moving to Wayland and that seems to be
the culprit (at least I suspect it too).

I just can't say I am 100% convinced because QT+Wayland seems way behind
compared to GTK+Wayland. So I am wondering if it has to do with the
framework itself.

I don't know much, just curious. I need to try some of the settings Thomas
recommended to see if I can help isolate the issue.

I'll try when I get some time.
