Hmm, could be that westeros is doing something wrong that causes the
pbuffer path to be hit.  I'm not entirely sure why pbuffer is not
supported in wayland (other than just that these days there are better
ways to do things than pbuffer), although I thought I remembered
seeing a fallback to surfaceless in webkit..
