- Fixed UI process getting stuck when navigating across different security
- Fixed invalid usage of Wayland client connections in the nested compositor
  which caused crashes in some situations.
- Made it easier to override where Meson looks for wayland-scanner during
  cross-compilation, using a native machine file.
