Thank you for fast reply. I have nothing about xwayland crash in log, 
only this:

     gnome-shell[1119]: Connection to xwayland lost

Enabled extensions:
     * gnome-shell-extension-dashtodock ( 68-1)
     * gnome-shell-extension-autohidetopbar ( 20200627-1 )
     * user themes ( minwaita-vanilla  theme, not default adwaita )
     * workspace indicator

Gnome-shell is crashing like this every few days, randomly. Hard to tell 
what can be related with this issue: running  virtualbox, firefox, 
thunderbird, ...
