Evolution crashes when replying or forwarding email under wayland
Evolution crashes when attempting to reply or forward an email message. This does not seem to happen the first time a reply or forward is attempted, but on subsequent attempts after a successful first reply or forward.
Manjaro Linux Evolution 3.36.3
When run from the command line, evolution crashes with the message:
Gdk-Message: 11:50:06.943: Lost connection to Wayland compositor.
This problem seems to only occur only under Wayland. When launching evolution in Gnome under X11 or Gnome under Wayland the crash does not occur; the problem was encountered when running SwayWM, where evolution launches purely with the Wayland backend. The problem can be fixed by launching evolution via:
env GDK_BACKEND=x11 evolution
But of course this is not optimal as Xwayland uses additional resources.
