Thanks for a bug report. This had been fixed upstream already, please see  for further details.
Any chance we can get an updated webkit with this patch into Fedora 29? This is very much a blocker for using Evolution-on-Wayland ?
I guess you speak of https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=794723#c14 , but the next comment there says it's not a WebKitGTK+ fix, but gtk3 fix. Unfortunately, there's not much interest from gtk+ developers: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gtk/issues/1447 It can be either they do not run Wayland or they do not use WebKitGTK+ as an editor.
Any chance we can at least get a downstream patch in Fedora for this until upstream gets its act together?
I'm not the gtk3 maintainer, thus it's not a question on me, but I'm wondering, which downstream patch do you mean, please? Every reference I gave is to upstream. The gitlab.gnome.org issue 1447 does contain some proposals, but nothing approved by the developers. It can cause issues due to that.
