libreport version: 2.0.7
abrt_version:   2.0.6
backtrace_rating: 4
cmdline:        /usr/bin/gnome-shell
comment:        Seems to happen randomly when using the mouse to switch to the activities screen (pointer to top left of screen).  Started happening after I installed the AMD Catalyst driver, but that could be a coincidence.

The problem seems to occur when running KDE applications, specifically kate but maybe others also, under gnome shell.  The shell keeps crashing, the display flickers when switching windows and the screen doesn't paint correctly (partial windows) when returning from the activities view.
Comment 9 Steve Barnsley 2011-11-29 11:58:26 EST
The problem is caused by having the kwalletmanager icon in the notification area.  If the icon is present the whole window/screen management of the shell goes to hell and the shell periodically crashes.  Close the kwalletmanager icon and everything runs as smooth as silk.
