Gnome-shell restarts randomly and sometimes craches
Last modified: 2011-11-29 15:21:16 EST
Description of problem: gnome-shell restarts itself randomly, and sometimes it craches and closes the session.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
this is the error message:
ERROR:gi/object.c:671:gjs_object_instance_constructor: assertion failed: (unthreadsafe_template_for_constructor.info == NULL || strcmp(g_base_info_get_name( (GIBaseInfo*) priv->info), g_base_info_get_name( (GIBaseInfo*) unthreadsafe_template_for_constructor.info)) == 0)
** Message: applet now removed from the notification area

Upstream knows about it, but no fix has been made yet. I see this on only one of three machines I use daily. They all have very similar hardware (same video driver for instance) and all the same shell extensions.
@Hicham, do you have the Gnome Shell Weather extension installed and enabled?

effectively, the origin of problem was from Weather extension, I disabled it, and now I'm fine :). thanks
