Package: gnome
Version: 1:3.4+7
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I've just completed a netinst of Debian 7.1.0 from an ISO downloaded and burned today.

On the first login to my user account after this install, Gnome fails to start and drops into some fallback mode.

At the top right corner of my display there was an icon that displayed an error message about this, but without any details.

In the syslog I see

Sep 16 17:13:49 BlackBox gdm-simple-greeter[3526]: CRITICAL: get_column_number: assertion `i < gtk_tree_view_get_n_columns (treeview)' failed
