After updating pinentry to version 1.1.1, pinentry-qt's dialog is minimized by default.
In the past the dialog would be shown and focused when it is created.
By removing line setWindowState(Qt::WindowMinimized); (link) in PinEntryDialog's constructor, the dialog
is shown and focused as expected.
Moreover, there are some warnings printed to the console when running command GETPIN in the pinentry-qt binary.
qt.qpa.wayland: Wayland does not support QWindow::requestActivate()
Seems that the requestActivate function is called by QWidget::activateWindow.
After some searching, it turns out that wayland by design does not allow grabbing focus.
A possible fix would be not calling setWindowState(Qt::WindowMinimized) in wayland. But I am not
sure about how it affects other parts of the codebase. This issue is like a fix that created another issue.
