summary: GTK pterm sets DISPLAY inappropriately under Wayland
class: bug: This is clearly an actual problem we want fixed.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: medium: This should be fixed one day.
present-in: 0.72

When running GTK pterm as a Wayland application, DISPLAY in the shell inside pterm ends up set to something like wayland-0. This is not very helpful, since it's not an X display name. In this case, pterm should pass on the value of DISPLAY from its environment rather than constructing a new one.

This probably also breaks X forwarding in PuTTY.
