Is there anything happening to find out what causes this bug?
Because it is really annoying.
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2015-11-11 07:30:28 EST
We're tracking this upstream here:


The issue is right now the start up path contains a tower of shell scripts that have nothing to do with the graphical session, and wayland is an opportunity to break away from that.

Obviously we need a way for users to set environment variables, though. See the upstream bug for more details.
