SUMMARY
With Spectacle 21.08.2 in Wayland, I can capture the window under cursor via the GUI but cannot do so in background mode. 

spectacle -bn -u -o $HOME/Pictures/"$(date +%Y%m%d-%H%M%S)".jpg does nothing (bound to Meta+Ctrl+U).

spectacle -bn -r -o $HOME/Pictures/"$(date +%Y%m%d-%H%M%S)".jpg works (bound to Meta+Ctrl+R).

spectacle -bn -f -o $HOME/Pictures/"$(date +%Y%m%d-%H%M%S)".jpg works (bound to Meta+Ctrl+F).

spectacle -bn -d 10000 -o $HOME/Pictures/"$(date +%Y%m%d-%H%M%S)".jpg works (bound to Meta+Ctrl+D).


EXPECTED RESULT
Using "-u" should work in background mode. Or maybe "spectacle --help" should be modified to indicate which options won't work in Wayland.

Can confirm.

This one reports the issue for the command line case but the bug origin is the same as the other.
