    I hear that Wayland sometimes mutters in his sleep mode.

    @off topic:

    If you two have mutters problem while sleeping, here is the medical advice: http://www.sleepdisordersguide.com/a...lking-in-sleep

    And Wayland, as protocol between Xclients and Wayland servers, has some another technical disorder, but I'll sort this out, don't you two worry, be happy!

    BTW, do NOT expect that you, guys, run TRUE Wayland server beneath GNOME-shell. Choosing Wayland, you have chosen to run GNOME on Xorg server (emulated by Wayland, not original Xorg server), and this Xorg server emulation communicates with GFX devices via Wayland compositor.

    Picture is worth 1000nd words!

    Really? You betcha?!

    OK, let me present to you the new facts!

    I finally discover what Wayland server I am running at GNOME on Wayland!

    [user@localhost ~]$ loginctl
    SESSION UID USER SEAT TTY
    4 1000 user seat0 /dev/tty7
    c1 42 gdm seat0 /dev/tty1
    2 0 root seat0 tty6

    3 sessions listed.
    [user@localhost ~]$ loginctl show-session 2 -p Type
    Type=tty
    [user@localhost ~]$ loginctl show-session 4 -p Type
    Type=wayland
    [user@localhost ~]$ loginctl show-session c1 -p Type
    Type=wayland
    [user@localhost ~]$ ps -elf | grep X
    0 S gdm 1481 1311 0 80 0 - 66519 - Jul10 tty1 00:02:33 /usr/bin/Xwayland :1024 -rootless -noreset -listen 4 -listen 5 -displayfd 6
    0 S user 1938 1930 0 80 0 - 70783 ep_pol Jul10 tty7 00:02:30 /usr/bin/Xwayland :0 -rootless -noreset -listen 4 -listen 5 -displayfd 6
    0 S user 37054 3099 0 80 0 - 29861 pipe_w 15:05 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto X
    [user@localhost ~]$

    It is... Xwayland???

    So, Houston, we have here The Problem! ;-)
