NetworkManager was displaying obnoxious dialog upon losing wifi connection asking for password,
clicked "connect" on that, shell crashed

After reading comment 11, I must rectify that the same issue seems to be the cause for me. Excuse me, I had the wrong crash in mind when reporting this bug. ;)

This bug was falsely marked as a duplicate by the abrt-bot. The backtraces are actually not the same.

Comment 19 Martin Wilck 2013-01-21 07:01:35 EST
I just recently had this problem again. It seems to happen when I mistype my WLAN pass phrase (my laptop sometimes switches to NumLock mode when disconnected from the docking station, causing me to mistype).

The sequence of events is like this:
 1. User activates WLAN connection (or auto-activation)
 2. Password popup is displayed
 3. Password mistyped
 4. Another password popup comes up after a few seconds
 5. User enters password again
 6. A 3rd password prompt pops up immediately. It looks as if it had been hidden below the popup from 4.)
 7. User types password yet again.
 8. 1st crash - GNOME shell resets itself (screen gets dark for a short time, then only background is visible, finally the shell GUI builds up again)

If the sequence 4.-7. is repeated, the GNOME shell will crash with the infamous "O no! something has gone wrong" message.

I am not certain if the passwords need to be mistyped in all steps 3./5./7.
The root cause for the crash is IMO that the password prompt is started twice (4. + 6.) when the first login attempt fails.

laptop was operating on wifi LAN.  Moved laptop to another location in building, lost wifi link.  Adjusted antenna position on access point, clicked "connect" on gnome shell prompt, gnome shell crashed.  gnome shell reloaded itself and wifi was connected ok.

Comment 21 Fedora End Of Life 2013-07-04 02:23:58 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '17'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Bug Reporter:  Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you 
would still like  to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version  of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Comment 22 Fedora End Of Life 2013-08-01 13:57:03 EDT
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
