Package: gnome-session
Version: 3.14.0-2
Severity: grave
Tags: newcomer
Justification: renders package unusable

right after upgrade from wheezy to jessie I'm not able to login with standard
gdm3 login panel. It takes my username and password, and tries to start gnome
session, but fails with "Opps" screen. The only hints I find in logs are
"drm:i9xx_set_fifo_underrun *ERROR* pipe A underrun".
