(Dis)connecting an external monitor or resizing a virtual machine switches GNOME to the login screen


If you connect or disconnect an external monitor in Fedora 36 Workstation, you might be switched to the login screen (gdm). This only seems to happen the first time you do this after a fresh system boot.

The same problem also affects virtual machines, when you resize their window (and you have automatic desktop resizing enabled). You’re also switched to the login screen.
