A regression in gtk3 (and gtk4) messes the scrolling in gtk-based apps (e.g. gedit, vscode).

EDIT: Never mind, just hit the bug on VSCode again...


Old post:

As of gtk3-1:3.24.33+r28+g01edbfb976-1, this seem fixed for me (I've only tested with vscode)

Someone else please confirm as well! :)

@GUiHKX, I advise you to report the issue upstream.

Your comment would indicate that the fix merged by GTK project was insufficient to fix the problem.

(I myself cannot help in this matter as I don't use Wayland and I haven't experienced the OP issue.)

I think this can be closed.
