Dear Maintainer,

In a Wayland session (gnome-shell in my case), double-clicking on an image when
using the Shotwell Viewer fullscreens the image, but then fails to close the

This picture will remain on-screen even after logging out. I need to reboot the
system to get rid of it.

I consider this a critical bug, as it renders the system unusable, and can
somewhat lead to data loss. It so happened that I manages to properly close and
save my work using purely the keyboard, but without being able to see what's on
the screen. This is due to an image being stuck on my screen, hiding everything

In a way, this could also be a (local) security bug, considering that the user 
make the image on screen disappear, even after logging out. This information may
be leaked to any other user of the same system.

This is a known bug, which was fixed upstream on version 0.32. Due to the Debian
freeze policy, this fix never made it into Buster.
