Subject: hugin/2019.0.0+dfsg-2 debian sid/testing crashing on start (amd64 as
	well x86/32bit)

greetings to the debian maintainers of package hugin,

thank you for doing this job. while starting hugin coming directly as a
package from debian repository - hugin crashed. analysed behaviour with
someone from hugin-dev-team. since debian basic distribution changes xserver
from xorg to xwayland an option has to be set at compile time.

forwarding relevant parts of the conversation:
> So this should be reported to Debian, which should adopt their build
> process by adding -DUSE_GDKBACKEND_X11=on to the CMake command.

> This is also mentioned in the release notes:

> Known issues

> Hugin does not run native on Wayland because of a bug in the underlying
> wxWidgets library. The source code contains a workaround which forces the
> usage of the XWayland emulation layer. This workaround has be activated
> during compiling by adding -DUSE_GDKBACKEND_X11=on to the CMake command
> line.

sorry for inconvenience - best regards
carsten :)
