Example of problem
Description of problem:
GNOME Terminal's transparency setting is completely broken under GNOME running under Wayland.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open GNOME terminal.
2. Go to the "Profiles" tab of the Preferences window and Edit a profile.
3. Enable background transparency (via the "Colors" tab of the "Editing Profile" window.)
Terminal is rendered with artifacts, sometimes with working transparency, other times not.
Terminal background becomes transparent and correctly alpha-blended as it does under X11.
See attachment for example.
Duplicate of bug 1207943 ?
Note, there is no transparency in gnome-terminal upstream AFAIK, this is a patch added downstream that breaks things with Wayland.

Sorry, I didn't find that when I first filed. Marking as dupe.
