Wayland window bar

I'm running 19.04 and running any of the demo apps or the scatter app the window appears fine and functions, however there is no bar at the top and so it cannot be moved, minimized or resized. It also appears as unknown in the alt+tab menu. Its this a known issue when running with go run?

This is caused by Wayland only supporting client side window decorations (title bar, close/minimize/maximize buttons). There is an extension for server side window decorations, but that's not implemented by popular compositors such as GNOME's Mutter.

This means Gio needs a way to add its own decorations, which is not implemented yet.

Now that X11 is supported, you can work around this issue by forcing X11:

$ go build -tags nowayland ...
