Bug#852699: dasher -- useless under GNOME (Wayland)

Control: retitle -1 dasher -- does not work with wayland backend

Following the instructions at:

I have been able to determine that the same symptoms also apply when
running in weston.

A work-around is to run dasher with GDK_BACKEND=x11:

GDK_BACKEND=x11 dasher

Then dasher mostly works. It cannot read the pointer position when the
pointer is out of the dasher window, so one should tick the option
"Pause outside canvas" in the "Control" tab of the "Preferences" window.

Regards, Thibaut.
