Assuming rsyslog, you can make rsyslog ignore it and then it will never
be logged. For example:

$ cat /etc/rsyslog.d/ignore-quadrapassel-gdkwindow-spam.conf
if $programname == 'quadrapassel' then {
    if $msg contains "drawable is not a native X11 window" then stop

Restart rsyslog afterwards:

# systemctl restart rsyslog

But probably it would be better to report the bug in
quadrapassel if it hasn't already been reported.
