Comment 1 Owen Taylor 2009-08-24 11:19:14 UTC
Not going to fix - running in Xephyr is pretty much a developer tool (see comment in bug 518948) and if Xephyr is buggy and segfaults, a developer should be able to figure that out.

> F11 host, F12 guest, KVM via virt-manager

Unfortunately, this isn't going to work :-( gnome-shell needs accelerated 3D and KVM doesn't provide that.
