(replying to myself)

I eventually forced Gnome shell to start by directly hacking
gnome-session-check-accelerated; I have no idea whether this is kosher.

# cd /usr/libexec
# mv gnome-session-check-accelerated gnome-session-check-accelerated.orig
# vi gnome-session-check-accelerated
create new file with the following two lines:
exit 0
# chmod 755 gnome-session-check-accelerated

You never really learn to swear until you learn to drive.
