 Which is totally useless, by the way. It says "Oh no!
wrong!" (Great. *WHAT* went wrong?) and informs me that I must logout. I
wasn't logged in. There's a nice logout button there, but it can't be
pressed. There is no mouse pointer. No keyboard shortcut that I can think
of causes the button to change appearance. Even if I did manage to press
it, what exactly would that do? I'm already not logged in!
I'd file a bug on upstream GNOME for this, against gdm or gnome-shell.
The screen is part of *gnome-shell*, in fact, not GDM. IIRC and AIUI
(put those on my gravestone!), the screen was introduced before gdm
became basically a special case of shell - so the screen was written
assuming it'd be displayed when a *logged-in session* hit a critical
failure. But now gdm *is* just a special case of gnome-shell...it also
shows up when a *gdm instance* hits a critical failure. And obviously,
as you say, makes very little sense in that case. CCing desktop list.
