Default Gnome borked?

Hi,

After doing a rather large update to my rawhide box, it seems that it
no longer wants to play fair with Gnome giving a very unfriendly
"Something has gone wrong which I can't recover from. You should
logout and try again" message. Other than some desklet errors, nothing
seems to be wrong (obviously it is though).

Any ideas what the problem is or how to fix it?

Its both a black screen of death and a black box process. Very frustrating.

In gnome 2 when the session crashed one could still run apps (add the term
shortut to nautilus, right click on the desktop and you have a term to launch
a wm and a browser to look for solutions). In gnome 3 you're finished. (what's
the point of showing the message if there is no option but to kill the
session? to taunt the user? might as well kick back directly into gdm and show
the message here)

Well it is just a window, you can alt-f4 out of it.

tried that - you get windows up with no minimise bar etc. Close them
and you get the logout warning again... Something is borked - looks
like gnome-shell here.

It might go beyond gnome shell. For me, gdm also failed. gnome-setting-daemon seemed to be crashing. I backed that out and then a different crash ensued.
After several months of trying out gnome and trying to keep an open mind, it was a good opportunity to switch to kde for a while.

This is a bug, not intended behavior.

main.js threw exception: Error: FIXME: Only supporting fixed size ARRAYs

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=714472

Waiting for a fix...too many dependencies to revert gnome-shell I guess.

With the latest gnome-shell and *gnome-settings-daemon from koji, gnome is back working again.
