Description nerdopolis1 2014-01-19 19:27:50 UTC
It seems that if I have default, and seat0, if I try to resize or move an xwayland window with seat0, the pointer for the default seat gets locked as the one doing the resize, and then I have to unlock it by clicking the mouse tied to default.

    xwayland: Be smarter about picking seats for move/resize
    If we're going to move or resize an xwayland surface, we used to just
    pick the first seat in the list for doing the move/resize.  Ideally we
    can map from the XInput device doing the click to the corresponding
    weston_seat, but that requires using xcb xinput, which isn't well supported.
    Instead, lets use a simple heuristic that just picks the pointer that
    most recently delivered a button event to the window in question.
