Gramps not remembering window positions

Using Gramps 5.1.3 on Ubuntu 21.04 (Wayland), I’m finding that Gramps is not remembering window positions at all. If I close and re-open a window, it always reopens at 26 pixels from the left, 23 pixels from the top.

Anyone have a guess what I’m running into?

Maybe this:

It is a design decision in Wayland/desktop to not expose absolute window positions to clients at all. This means that you simply cannot know where a top-level window is precisely, you can only know which outputs it overlaps with.

python - wxpython on Wayland is unable to interact with screen coordinates (move a window, GetScreenPosition, etc.) - Stack Overflow

the only answer mentions:

You can set an environment variable GDK_BACKEND=x11 to force Xwayland

See if that works for you?

Definitely something Wayland related. I switched back to for now. I’ll try out xwayland later this week.
