This is the exact error:
Couldn't open libGLESv2.so.2: libGLESv2.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

(Yes, a clock application not starting because it needs OpenGL is... pretty
weird indeed.)

I can confirm this error, though it only happens in wayland enabled
sessions on my old laptop with an Intel GM965/GL960.  This doesn't
happen on machines with modern graphics cards installed.

The list is longer for me on Gnome applications that will fail to start:

gnome-calculator, gnome-calendar, gnome-characters, gnome-clocks
gnome-contacts, gnome-font-viewer, etc.

Checkout is at 8f9588185d74f1f251b041b84d43302c337588ff.

It does work with LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1, but it would be pretty messed
up if that had to be enabled globally.

Thanks for that tip! 

I fired up a recent Fedora live image to see that these applications do
work in wayland on this old machine.  Which they do. 

Gnome in Ferdora is already at 43.
