Thanks for sending this list of showstoppers. That's a very useful

It seems there are two bugs here. One had already been reported as bug
#128317. There's a patch attached to this bug that seems to fix it.
However it just replaces a gdk_pixbuf_get_from_drawable() with some code
that should be equivalent but does not crash. I did not have time to
look further at this, but I'm wondering if this might be a GDK bug...

Patch attached to the bug. I'll ask for ui breakage soon.

This one is probably the next bug on my TODO list since it really makes
the window list looks bad.
