Package: gnome-tweak-tool
Version: 3.14.2-2
Severity: serious
Justification: causes data loss


reducing the "Number of Workspaces" (for "Workspace Creation" Static) in
the Workspaces tab of Gnome Tweak Tool crashes the whole Gnome session:

Oh no! Something has gone wrong.
A problem has occured and the system can't recover. All extensions have
been disabled as a precaution.

Therefore all unsaved changes in any running application are lost and
extensions have to be reenabled manually.

I noticed this on a fresh (2015-04-05) Jessie installation with no
extensions. I can reproduce it here on my daily-use-laptop Jessie
