Running a GTK+ 3 app with GOBJECT_DEBUG=instance-count enables the
Statistics tab in GTK Inspector, but after clicking the Record button it
never starts collecting statistics. This makes it difficult to develop
and debug memory leaks in GTK programs on Ubuntu.

To reproduce:

1. Start an app with the Inspector and GOBJECT_DEBUG=instance-count set,

> GOBJECT_DEBUG=instance-count GTK_DEBUG=interactive gnome-calculator

2. Click the Statistics tab
3. Click the Record button
4. Click around the app a bit

Expected: Object counts go up, pretty graphs showing things
Actual: Object counts stay at 0, pretty graphs showing flat lines

This seems like it is Ubuntu-specific, since when running GTK+ programs
installed via Flatpak (and hence using the Flatpak runtime), the above
works fine on the same system.
