Near as I can tell, this thing is running X11, not Wayland.

When in doubt, RTFM.

I use XFCE, which is a mishmash of GTK2 and GTK3. Also, I suspect that
SDL support for Wayland is disabled in plain vanilla Debian 11.

SDL2 does support Wayland, but it defaults to X unless explicitly requested not to (with env var).

Here's pull request for SDL to default to using
Wayland directly under Wayland, which lists issues blocking it:

Btw. Nowadays Xwayland works so well that there's
not much perf or functional difference running
through it, or natively under Wayland, if program
respects modern standards
(i.e. supplies relevant X properties etc).

Also, According to that,
XFCE support for Wayland is still several years off.

Yeah, window managers are all about doing direct
X stuff, which does not translate that well to
Wayland, so it needs to be rewritten almost
completely. And WM is one of the hairiest and
most important / distinguishing components of
a desktop...

Almost all the other stuff should work pretty well
already though.
