Video with recorded Wayland behavior

Description of problem:
I run Fedora rawhide in Gnome Boxes. The login screen and Wayland sessions are blinking continuously. In case of desktop session, I even cannot open any application via Activity because each blink close Activity overview and returns me back to desktop. Please see attached video with recorded session behavior.

I can fix it with re-login to X-session instead. I wanted to show it in my video but recording was stopped / interrupted on host running that VM each time I logged off from Wayland (I do not know why)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -qa | grep wayland

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See video

Actual results:
Login screen and desktop sessions are blinking

Expected results:
No blinking
