I've installed latest update of xorg-xwayland.
After reboot, chromium and code(vscode) became unusable.
Scrolling has become unpredictable. When trying to scroll through the document, scrolling could stop working at any time, its speed could decrease. In theory, only GTK applications are problematic(telegram-desktop worked fine).

Downgrading to version 1.20.0.r844.g1e72c3ce8-1 solved the problem.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
xorg-xwayland 1.20.0.r853.gfdc61c5a3-1
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install xorg-xwayland 1.20.0.r853.gfdc61c5a3-1
2. Reboot the system, or login/logout
3. Launch chromium or code(vscode)
4. Try to scroll large document or page
This task depends upon

Please report this upstream and probably also bisect to find the commit causing this one.
