Really? AFAIK the issue is that:
1. openSUSE adjusts the hostname based on DHCP and reverse DNS (other distros
by default don't)
2. To mitigate xauth related issues, libxcb is patched to handle

The issue is that flatpak applications don't use the system libxcb, and are
thus affected by 1. I don't think there's any issue with the hostname format by

Without patching libxcb or mitigating the issue in another way (SDDM and GDM in
TW use FamilyWild, which doesn't depend on hostnames), this can't be fixed
completely because the hostname can still change dynamically.
