Latest build: "Allow inhibiting shortcuts?" dialog (Ubuntu)

I start usually looking-glass using “looking-glass-client -F -S spice:captureOnStart=y”.
In b1 this worked well. In the latest build when the client window opens I’m presented with a dialog asking “the looking-glass-client wants to inhibit shortcuts. Deny / Allow?” Deny is the option that works best for me.

Is there a way to disable looking-glass from trying to inhibit shortcuts? I’ve experimented with various command line options and don’t see a way. Am I missing something obvious?

This is on Ubuntu 20.04.2 Wayland.
The client output is:

input:grabKeyboardOnFocus=no

Adding input:grabKeyboardOnFocus=no to the looking-glass-client command line had no effect. The dialog is still displaying.

I am sorry but I do not have a solution for this other than to wait for after B3 final is out, we have had some developers put a ton of work into supporting Wayland better that may help things.

No worries, it’s little more than a minor annoyance.
I can’t thank you and your fellow developers enough for your hard work.

In the future should issues like this be filed as bugs in the LookingGlass github or posted here?

Normally either is fine as I monitor both, I will instruct you if you need to open an issue however. It’s usually best to post here or ask in discord first though to avoid issues being open for known bugs we are working on.

Ok, got it.
Just fyi rather than pollute the forum with another post, just FYI I updated to bleeding-edge as of today to give it a try and the client segfaults with the following output:
