Package: gnome-shell
Version: 3.8.4-8+b1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

the problem I am facing is pretty similar to the one reported in bug #712803
which was closed since the reporter said that he was "no longer using Gnome or
Debian!" :-(

As I said the problem is similar because it is related to the shutdown button
of the graphical interfacewhich does not work any more since one of my usual
full-upgrade run few week ago.

The main difference which make the problem more serious to me is that in my
experience there is time delay: the shutdown procedure is not activated at all
and, furthermore, the system gets damaged somehow (as far as I can imagine the
shutdown process started but it stops unexpectedly and it never gets completed)
and the you cannot open any terminal but a virtual console to run the shutdown
command (not a drama but it is really annoying!).

I have found the very same bug even in other computers where I happended to
work on recently.

Thanks for your support!
