Got some quick help over there. Turns out there was a mismatch between
the wmclass "broadcasted" to Gnome/Mutter (lowercase "emacs") and the
StartupWMClass field in the desktop file (capitalized "Emacs"). Changing
the StarupWMClass to "emacs" fixes the problem.

If someone from the elisp-team ppa is reading this list, I would suggest
keeping the capitalized Emacs StartupWMClass in the desktop files but
changing the wmclass in Wayland to "emacs".
