Description of problem:
A series of events led to this. But ultimately I don't know what caused the problem.
1. cntrl-alt-shift-r trying to do a screen cast because with Wayland compositing, I can't resize any windows and I wanted to file a bug.
2. gnome-shell crashes with SIGSEGV, but abrt won't file a bug due to some error. So while clicking on a close button, I started to see a pile of completely unrelated abrt windows appear with each click.
3. In Terminal I tried to gnome-session-quit, but that stalled. So then I tried systemd restart gdm, and that stalled. Then I tried systemd isolate multi-user.target and that stall. So I rebooted.
4. Upon reboot, abrt informs me that at some point in between steps 2 and 3, a SIGTRAP occurred.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 21 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 21. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
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.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 21 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 this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
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.
Fedora 21 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-12-01. Fedora 21 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
