For online meetings I have always used share window (as opposed to sharing a chrome tab or entire screen).  Recently this has been broken.

Using current F38+kde+wayland.
Tested on teams and on google meet (same interface, must be part of KDE I think).
If I select a window to share the tab for that window on the task manager disappears, which gives me no way to move my cursor to that window and do the presentation.

I find share a screen still works fine, and I guess I'll have to use that for now.

Seems some recent change.  Along with it also there is a change to the way the dialog for sharing appears, and for some reason you need to go through 2 different dialogs the confirm sharing 2 times.  This again is a recent change.

Any ideas?

After playing around some more I have some new observations:
1. logout/login seems to have cleared the problem.  The window I wanted to share no longer has it's tab disappear making it impossible to select.
2. The strangeness of needing to go through 2 sharing dialogs is kde/wayland.  If I use kde/X11 it still behaves the same as it did in the past, and works fine.
