Most AltGr+STH special characters not working

Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

On a Debian buster system running Gnome via Wayland, where host keymap is German (DE), I can't manage to get certain special characters such as @ (AltGr+Q) or (AltGr+E) printed. Same for square brackets (AltGr+8/9) and so son.
I don't think it's an obvious keymap/locale mismatch, as all Shift+[0-9] combinations result in the correct symbols. Also the German-specific ÄÖÜ-keys work as expected.
Funny enough though '|' (AltGr+<) work, so it's not all AltGr-combinations.

PS: Most of the time writing this bug report was spent in copy+pasting above special characters, as this browser window was started via Xpra :)

Version is as of Debian buster:
ii xpra 2.5.2+dfsg1-2 amd64

One unusual thing might be, that I'm starting xpra under a different user than my desktop (wayland/Xwayland) is running on.

I suggest changing the max-ticket-size in trac to at least allow inclusion of a fill "xpra info".
