    Okay, I know the need some sort of a fix that will work with the current rest of the stack but it sounds like a nasty kludge. It would be interesting to hear from the Wayland people if they intend to fix the protocol in the future.

    we all know none does that in the embedded world.

    When you can hack around the problem instead of fixing it, you do.

    Phoronix: Samsung Dealing With Wayland "Zombie Apocalypse" Bug

    Samsung OSG developers have been investigating and dealing with a nasty Wayland bug whereby a Wayland event could be delivered to an incorrect file descriptor. This ends up being due to a shortcoming in the Wayland protocol, but as to not break all existing software out there built against the current Wayland protocol, a workaround has been devised...
