Nope, I'm not getting it.

If I run (with 10654 being gnome-shell's process) from VT1...

gdb /usr/bin/gnome-shell 10654

... then switching back to the shell, and the shell is frozen, can't
interact with it in anyway shape or form. (Killing gdb and then
switching back to gnome-shell, and gnome-shell is normal again and I can
start programs, access Activites etc.)
