Typing flaws after gnome-shell 3.26
We are losing characters, missing correct uppercases and sometimes having rrrrrepeated charactersssss.
It is found on fedora29, openSUSE Tumbleweed, with gnome-shell version 3.30 or 3.28. However, OpenSUSE Leap 15, with gnome-shell 3.26, is flawless. Problem only happens when we have wayland with gnome-shell later then 3.26. However, X11 and wayland under KDE are all decent.
I presume it is a gnome-shell problem since typing flaws happens when keystrokes from
/dev/input/event* is correct and starting a single mutter is also flawless.
What do think? If it might be about gnome-shell interfacing with wayland, then could you suggest which part internally is handling that?

We would like to start a gnome-shell with wayland, and reproduce typing flaws with xdotool.
dbus-run-session -- gnome-shell --nested --wayland
In another terminal,
WAYLAND_DISPLAY=wayland-0 gedit & sleep 2 && xdotool type --window 0 AaBbAaBbAaBb # click on the new window during `sleep 2`
Additionally, you could start a qemu instance and use vncdotool to send key strokes.
Thank you in advance!
