Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2016-10-06 16:29:29 EDT
This is a legitimate bug and it should get looked at in a future update.
Comment 4 Florian Müllner 2017-06-27 14:13:11 EDT

Comment 8 Florian Müllner 2017-08-14 21:09:52 EDT
(Not sure what you mean by "root cause", but I attached the warning fix now)
Comment 9 Florian Müllner 2017-10-26 12:26:45 EDT
I took the liberty to fix the warning when rebasing the downstream patch for RHEL 7.5 - it should be gone in the latest gnome-shell build.

Warnings not present in 3.26.
