Bug#846898: Only works with Gnome wayland from gdm3

Control: forwarded -1 https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=771744
Control: tags -1 upstream fixed-upstream patch pending
Control: severity -1 serious
Control: affects -1 gnome-shell


I am also experiencing this problem here. The journal clearly shows
that gnome-shell crashes on login. Here's what happens when it is
started manually:

	$ DISPLAY=:0 gnome-shell --replace
	X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
	  Major opcode of failed request:  131 (XInputExtension)
	  Minor opcode of failed request:  57 ()
	  Value in failed request:  0x11d
	  Serial number of failed request:  365
	  Current serial number in output stream:  366

Since this problem is preventing regular users from using their
computers, I am raising the severity accordingly. 

Fortunately enough, there is already a fix available [0] and it has
already been applied in SVN [1], so please release a fixed package
version as soon as possible!

Best regards

Alexander Kurtz
