There's nothing specially related to GUIs in this problem, I think
that's a bug in the kernel. So I'm not "deferring the problem to another
list", I'm just saying that there's no hope the desktop team will fix
it, and the only option is to discuss this with kernel developers. Have
a look at the bug report I linked to, and you'll see that's the only
guarantee to avoid talking with nobody listening...
