Looks like a crash in WebKitGTK+ which I suspect is used by Liferea
to render HTML. Is your version of WebKitGTK+ working in Wayland?

I think so... Although, how do I tell? Fedora 27 is Wayland-based,
but I think there's a compatibility with X.

[zaitcev@lembas ~]$ ldd /usr/bin/liferea (0x00007ffcb4d6b000)
...... => /lib64/

Wayland is incomplete and only works with select few apps,
which is something you can do when configuring Fedora's
GNOME config. Been trying it once a year, and it doesn't
even solve tearing as well as xf86-video-intel's TearFree
has for years. One day Wayland will be stable and support
things we had in Xorg. It's premature to put it into RHEL,
but I suspect the developers have tested support for all
the commercial X11 apps places like Pixar use and how those
cope under XWayland.

I found Arcan (one man project) to work better, but that
one's in development.

If there's nothing open yet and PlatformDisplayWayland's C++ destructor
is called, maybe the constructor failed to set thing up?

That's what I guess, too, but I need to figure out the exact scenario
before I can fix anything.

I think I'll start by trying to re-build the RPM that comes with the
distro and then narrow the differences.

Thanks for your help!

By the way, gtk-list@ seems abandoned by the developers from what
I can tell. Maybe file a bugreport instead?
