Thanks a lot Philipp for your comments, it really helped. Now I get
the display correctly. However now I get the segmentation at different
location with my uses case [1] after back porting patches from wayland
1.11.0 to 1.9.0 and and also utilizing proxy wrappers in ILM control
library.

(gdb) bt
#0  0x68d11554 in wl_array_copy (array=0x67d2eb98, source=0x1) at
/usr/src/debug/wayland/1.9.0-r0/wayland-1.9.0/src/wayland-util.c:145
#1  0x00000000 in ?? ()
Backtrace stopped: previous frame identical to this frame (corrupt stack?)
