Session log from gnome login attempt
I am having the same problem. I can not login to icewm either, where the .xsession-errors gives:
icewm-session: using /home2/barry/.icewm for private configuration files
IceWM: using /home2/barry/.icewm for private configuration files
icewmtray: using /home2/barry/.icewm for private configuration files
IceWM: A window manager is already running, use --replace to replace it
Also if I drop to init level 3 (the only way I know to kill gdm) I can login in the console and do a 'startx', which will bring up gnome, but uses the fallback mode. Before the upgrade gnome-shell ran in normal mode.

Maybe, duplicated bug?

I'm fairly sure this was fixed along the way, joachim, please re-open if you still have trouble.
