Dear Maintainer,

I installed Debian Stretch RC2 on my laptop.
It have two radeon cards (Radeon HD 8610G and HD 8670M), my driver is radeon, I
installed firmware.

When trying to log in for the first time, with wayland:
- There is only the grey wallpaper of gdm3
- After, a black screen
- Finally, gdm3 is restarting

When trying anything else:
- It works fine

When trying openbox/Gnome without wayland, log out, and trying again Gnome with
- It works fine

I found that logs with journalctl:

I'm not sure, but I think Xwayland can't start if Xorg was not called (if gdm3
uses Wayland).
