  [Bionic] [wayland] many gnome applications exit or crash when a file
  is opened from within

Status in mutter package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress
Status in mutter source package in Bionic:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  From the login screen, click your name, then click the gear button and select 
Ubuntu. Log in.

  Steps to reproduce for Nautilus
  0) From the login screen, click your name, then click the gear button and 
select Ubuntu on Wayland. Log in.
  1) Open nautilus (currently 3.26.2 in bionic)
  2) Browse to a location with a textfile or an archive (eg. 
/home/user/.thunderbird )
  3) Right click a textfile or an archive (eg. profiles.ini)
  4) Choose gedit or File Roller from the list, click ok.
  5) Nautilus crashes, gedit or File Roller don't come up

  Another observation: This problem is not limited to Nautilus. Thus
  going back to Nautilus 3.26.0 will not help.

  Steps to reproduce for other apps (via opening yelp files)
  1) Open nautilus
  2) click on the nautilus entry in the top bar (right of "Activities").
  3) Select "Help"
  4) nautilus exits, yelp doesn't come up
  5) open polari
  6) click on the "Polari" entry in the top bar (right of "Acitivies").
  7) Select "Help"
  8) See polari crash
  9) Open gnome-control-center
  10) See that gnome-control-center will exit/crash, see that yelp doesn't come 

  Affected applications
  Not all applications crash. Most applications don't offer the possibility to 
open yelp from the top bar. So those are not mentioned in the list below:

  * Deja Dup, Gnome control center, Nautilus, Polari, Gnome-Disks,
  Gnome-Photos, gEdit and gnome-logs will crash

  * Gnome Terminal, Rhythmbox, Gnome-Sudoku, Cheese, Gthumb, Gnome-
  Mahjongg, Gnome-Mines, Simple-Scan, Gnome-Calculator and Gnome-Clocks,
  File Roller, gnome-screenshot, baobab, gnome-system-monitor and Totem
  will not.

  Other Info
  Opening a file from Nautilus with LibreOffice doesn't crash Nautilus.

  Is that a Mutter or Gnome-shell regression? Is it going to be fixed upstream? 
It seems that some (XDG?-) handover between some gnome apps doesn't work as 
expected and both apps have to exit.
