Alacritty window invisible on kde plasma wayland

I think it broke after updating my packages and rebooting.

Alacritty is working. I can type commands but the window is invisible. I can only make it visible by using meta+arrow key. If I try to drag it, it disappears instantly. When I resize the window with the mouse while it is visible using the arrow key trick the issue is temporarlily fixed. Until it is closed and opened again.

alacritty 0.9.0 (fed349aa)
plasmashell 5.23.3
kf5-config --version
Qt: 5.15.2
KDE Frameworks: 5.87.0
kf5-config: 1.0

Arch linux

I recorded my screen:

Alacritty doesn't seem to report any issues.
How should I investigate this further?
How can I find out if it's kdes fault or alacritty's fault? (or mine)

Re: Alacritty window invisible on kde plasma wayland

This sounds similar to an issue I encountered where my window was incredibly tiny (1x1) at startup, despite my config file specifying the window size. I can drag and resize the window, but every new window, even without my config file, is small.

I opened up an issue on it here, as I think it's a bug in alacritty that popped up with a recent KDE update.
