Crashes on 'power dialog' in Gnome Shell, dbus problem?
This has been a problem for a while but I never reported it. When you go to the 'User Menu' under Gnome Shell 3.2(not tested other versions) and click Power Off for instance by first opening User Menu, then holding the Alt key down and clicking Power Off... it instantly kills Guayadeque, even if I click cancel and don't restart or power off. So I finally ran under gdb to see whats happening, here is what I get:
Then the bt:

Hi I was just wondering if you looked into this at all. Is there any more info you might need I can provide. Perhaps I can install whatever else it was it asked for that didn't have debug flags.
I need to check with gnome shell
it doesn't do that with gnome 3.3.5 i just checked !
perhaps theres a way to find out what change was made then, as I can't see waiting 2-3 months for 3.3 stable as a viable solution. Currently the most up to date stable build I can get is 3.2.2.
it won't be 3.3 stable it will be 3.4 ! current version is 3.3.90 which also has no errors!
Well I don't know how the naming convention works so thanks for confirming that it will be 3.4. That will be the next stable release apart from 3.2.2, and it comes out in May, iirc? Or is that only the next MAJOR release, and perhaps there is another stable build that may be pushed upstream sooner?
actually if you add the ricotz/testing ppa it is very stable and you can upgrade and then disable the ppa if you want!
Do you perhaps happen to know of a repository that can be built from source, as I don't use Ubuntu/Debian? Also do you know of one that is possible to install side by side as an entirely seperate DE/Session, I ask thise because that one you posted is listed as testing and unstable, and I would rather not use something that isn't as stable as the current Gnome Stable release, on a production machine without a fallback method, especially given the current 'buggy' status of 3.2.*. Thanks though, it is nice to see so many repositories for GS.
