I think you should tell the people over at Gnome. Apparently, they don't know it since after they ported GTK to work on Wayland, most of their apps still didn't work!! /s
There can be X-specific calls within the application as well, not going through the toolkit. There are a lot of applications with this, actually, since most people came to expect X11 to be on every Linux desktop...
