Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

Updating (apt-get upate ; apt-get dist-upgrade -u -f ) my testing installation
on 2016-01-27.

After boot on 2016-01-28), I saw that the "Applicatins menu" item (top left
corner of the Gnome bar) had disappeared.

Qerying gnome-tweak tool showed tha the extensin was inactive and had a
"Danger" icon net to the "Remove" button.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

- I tried to remove the extension : no visible effect.

- I tried the extension page on http://extensions.gnome.org : it displays an
"ERROR" icon on the left of the application image.

- I tried reinstalling gnome-shell-extension : no visible effect (even after

(fromp the console) I tried :
        - stopping gnome (i. e. ending the session, then stopping gdm3)
        - purging gnome-shell-extension (which also purged gnome and gnome-
        - reinstalling gnome, gnome-core and gnome-shell-extensions
        - restarting gdm3 and reopening a gnome session.

No visible effect.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

No visible effect for any of these actions.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

The "Application menu" back where it belongs.
