Default Please review potential blockers for F15 Alpha

Hey, folks. At the blocker review meeting today we agreed that we were
not in a position to decide on the status of these potential blockers:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=677842
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=677371

they apparently cause an unusable system as Shell repeatedly crashes and
fallback mode does not kick in. We are unsure of the extent of the
impact; several different reporters seem to have hit these (including
the Chinese install testers, though they didn't add a comment to the
bug, they mentioned it in their test report).

Can you please take a look and see if you can provide any additional
information on these bugs so we can evaluate their blocker-iness?
Thanks!

Thanks for the info! Can you quantify 'longer'? If we delayed Alpha by a
week, would that be enough time?
