I've hit a new problem: During zoom any new actors displayed for the
first time (e.g. some bubble menus) are themselves not clones. If you
start gnome-shell with zoom already enabled then even major actors like
the panel or dash are also not clones. Because the unzoomed version
either never existed or was never in a stage at least.
So we can't test for them being clones, meaning
https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutter/merge_requests/52 won't help us
here even after fixing the bugs in that branch :(

Top bar and shell dialogs are not displayed properly when zoom is

Status in mutter package in Ubuntu:
When zoom is enabled, the top bar and some shell dialogs (wireless
network selection, shutdown dialog, etc.) are not displayed properly.
(See the attached screenshots.)
Steps to reproduce the issue:
1. Enable Zoom in Setting > Universal Access
2. (Optional) Set zoom factor to around 3 (or higher)
3. Look at the top bar. You will notice that all texts and icons are now
gone. If you move your cursor to the right of the top bar, and then click on
the status menu, you will see that only a portion of the menu is shown.
4. For the shell dialogs, go to the Settings app. In the Wifi section, choose
one of the secured network available. You will see that the password dialog is
not displayed in its entirety.
