It looks like this crash happened when using Alt+Tab, but we can't figure out exactly where in that code it's crashing. Were you running a lot of apps at the time? (Enough so that they wouldn't all easily fit into the Alt+Tab window.)
Comment 6 Julien Fabius 2011-04-16 10:18:26 EDT
For example : I'm using Libreoffice, Pidgin, gnome-terminal and firefox. Not a lot of apps. I tried with two console, it crash.

I installed gnome-tweak-tool in order to change gnome-shell theme. If I'm not wrong, the bug appeared at this moment. Although I put back the default theme, alt + tab doesn't work anymore, even if I remove the package.

(sorry for the bad english)
Comment 7 Julien Fabius 2011-04-17 10:59:55 EDT
It was the gnome-shell-extension-alternate-tab that crashed gnome-shell. I removed it and it works again.
Comment 8 Timur Kristóf 2011-04-17 13:05:59 EDT
gnome-shell-extensions-alternate-tab works for me, how can you be sure that it is what caused the crash?
Comment 9 Julien Fabius 2011-04-17 15:54:19 EDT
I don't understand : I tried to reinstall the package and now it works. 
However when it was installed, It didn't works !

There may be a link, but I couldn't change the wallpaper, and now I can.

What component can I put now ? (I'm new in bug reports)
Comment 10 talonx 2011-08-30 02:38:30 EDT
Same here. I have this extension and it was running fine. But then GNOME 3 started crashing after I ran a yum update. I've tried uninstalling the extension and reinstalling many times. It's always the same behaviour - GNOME 3 crashes on Alt-Tab when the extension is present, and works fine when it's not.

This is obviously a problem with the extension. It's a very helpful extension (the default GNOME 3 window-switching behaviour being unusable), so please fix it.
