sway unable to start Xwayland
(address . bug-guix@gnu.org)
alpine.DEB.2.21.2112192346010.9433@marsh.hcoop.net
Hi Guix,

With Guix 11334d15d590073c631c574436d2110aa1ea2142, sway is not able to
start Xwayland. I believe that is was working correctly for me at commit
d627fbad8f4e157103251b07d7543dd2f5647cea.

Running sway manually from a VT, I was able to capture the following
messages:

```

And, had I thought about the above messages more, I would have looked at
the ownership of /tmp/.X11-unix initially. I've now done so and found out
that it was owned by gdm. The weird bit is though that I had previously
run `herd stop xorg-server` and there were not gdm processes running, and
loginctl reported no gdm sessions.

Anyways, I don't think the commits above are particularly relevant. I'll
go ahead and re-title the issue.

Best,
Jack
