The Sleep, Restart, Shut down, and Other options disappeared each time the Password box was selected such as less than a second after sddm on Wayland started or when I clicked on the Password box. Clicking on the Virtual Keyboard, Keyboard layout and Desktop session boxes made the Sleep, Restart, Shut down, and Other options reappear until I clicked on the Password box. The Virtual Keyboard still didn't show up when I clicked its box. Clicking on Keyboard layout and Desktop session boxes made the menus open without the flickering problem at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2054016. The keyboard layout can be changed, but its setting didn't persist on the next boot. Clicking the login button in sddm on Wayland with a correct password logged in to Plasma on Wayland each time using plasma-workspace-5.24.2-3.fc36 and sddm-0.19.0^git20220228.c257a40-3.fc36 and with an incorrect password showed Login failed. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2059837

yeah, this is definitely better than before. I think the options disappearing and reappearing is as intended (it didn't work as intended before but it does with this update).

@adamwill The Sleep, Restart, Shut down, and Other options were always visible in sddm on X for the last few years, so it is a change in behaviour at least. I've had to click on the Virtual keyboard, Keyboard layout, or Desktop session boxes to see and use those options in sddm on Wayland, which is counterintuitive to me as those functions seem unrelated.
