Description of problem:
This happens very often:
After the todays morning updates (sep 07) having a heavy problem with gnome-shell-sessions:
Each time I traverse the Activities button (screen top left), my gnome
session dies with "Oh no, something has gone wrong...". I can reproduce this!
It seems it has nothing to do with installed gnome-shell-extensions, because if I remove all extensions, I have still this behaviour.
Creating a new user, this user shows the "Avctivities" drop down menu
properly and starts the app if clicking on it's icon.
But if I change for this new user the window theme by gnome-tweak-tool
from default to Clearlooks (for example), then the gnome session crashes mostly
too for this new user. By resetting the window theme I get rid from this
It seems something in my homedirectory is the culprit for this, but what?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Very often, but not always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Login into a gnome session
2.Touch the Activities button
The session dies with "Oh no. Something has gone wrong"
The session continues
1. I saw some errors in ~/.xsession-errors. I'll attach it
2. There seems to be a weird "self-healing" effect, because after some time (login, crash, login again, multiple times) I can click the Activities button and show the correspondent menu (the session continues)
