SDL2 / Kivy keyboard event not firing in Snap

I'm trying to use Kivy ( ) inside a snap. It mostly
works, but some SDL2 events don't occur. If I run the application from
outside of a snap the events do happen.

Specifically, the textinput event works outside of a snap, not inside of a
snap. This is the code I'm using:

I have asked in the Kivy IRC, but didn't get very far there. Are there any
permissions I should be aware of? Any other packages I need installed for
all the SDL2 events to work?

Thanks ahead of time!
