Bug#782370: Using tiling WM and no login manager

I forgot to mention that I am using no login manager, just startx from
console which starts the i3 window manager via .xsession.
I3 WM has very good support for various WM hints, similar bugs often
mention tiling window managers, but not a specific one.

Therefore, it seems to me that it might be some setting that a login
manager or DE sets and a minimal setup does not.
If that is the case, it should be handled by /etx/X11/Xsession.d/ files so
that every X session has it correctly enabled.

This bug is very inconvenient, it makes GTK3 apps hard to use, so maybe the
severity could be bumped if applicable.

Kind regards,
Ondřej Grover
