.xsession-errors from this session
I did an OS update last night. When I booted up this morning, I got a desktop with nautilus running but no gnome-shell. Reverting the OS update didn't fix the problem.
I do have gnome-shell-18.104.22.168-1.fc16.x86_64 installed.

List of packages updated
Hmm, my "yum history undo" didn't seem to revert most of the updated packages. I'm attaching a list of what got updated.
Also note that if I hit Ctrl+Alt+F2 and log in on the other VT, I can "setenv DISPLAY :0.0" and start gnome-shell there and everything works fine.
This was fixed for me after installing some later updates.
